Other ways to help

Here are some other ways that you can help Fiona with the costs of looking after and feeding the rescued animals at the Sanctuary

Bread run volunteers

With over 100 rescued pigs living at the Sanctuary, feeding them is a big responsibility. We are lucky enough to be able to collect on date bread and produce from a supermarket which saves it from being thrown away and provides an excellent range of food for the Pigs.

If you live in Essex and are close to Brentwood, then this is something you might like to volunteer for. The organisation of the volunteers is co-ordinated via a facebook group called "Bread Run Volunteers". 



Clothing created by some of our volunteers, the designs feature the Tower Hill Sanctuary name and logo, along with other designs featuring some of our resident animals.

100% of the profit goes towards the costs at the sanctuary. You get to represent Tower Hill Stables whilst you are out and about, helping to spread awareness of the sanctuary and the work Fiona does.


river field vegan weddings

The River Field is a beautiful and peaceful 7 acre spot overlooking the Blackwater Estuary and is available for dry hire for your Outdoor Vegan Wedding Event from May through to September for up to 100 guests with parking available on site.

Naturally, being based at a Vegan Sanctuary surrounded by rescued animals, all events must comply 100% with a Vegan ethic.

100% of hire costs will be in the form of a donation to Tower Hill Stables Animal Sanctuary.

On line shopping

This facility really is too good to be true! If you ever shop on line, then please consider visiting your online retailer via this link as if you do and then make a purchase, the Sanctuary receives a small commission.  It costs you nothing.

There are hundreds of retailers in the scheme, from Amazon to M&S to Play.com

Just visit the link, create an account, select Tower Hill Stables Animal Sanctuary as your supported cause and that's it :)



While we aren't open to the public, we are happy to arrange days for people to visit.

As of 2019, we are offering the chance for volunteer stays at the sanctuary. You can help out with the everyday jobs such as mucking out, feeding, sweeping and tidying the stables, or petting Florence as shown above.

All we ask is for a donation of £30 (Per Person) for a night or £150 for one week. All of this donation will go back into the running of the sanctuary and feed costs.

If you are interested in visiting, please email:


air b&b

Our Air B&B is located at the Gracedale Farm Sanctuary; it is a small country estate situated just to the west of Bradwell- On- Sea Village on the Maldon Road. Within easy reach of the sea wall, the locale is quiet and perfect for cycling or running.

You’re welcome to book the room out and enjoy a nice peaceful stay, see the animals and walk around the countryside.

buy a cd

Albums made by the progressive rock band "YAK" are sold in aid of the rescued animals at the Sanctuary when purchased directly from the band's website.

Quote from Kinesis Prog Rock CD's  'Just when you’ve despaired of ever hearing a British prog band create the real thing again, you are rescued by a Yak'

Over 2000 albums sold to date


golden giving

Golden Giving is the fundraising page we use when we have specific campaigns that you can donate towards such as vet bills and building costs for the new sanctuary.

We use Golden Giving as they don’t take as much from each donation, unlike Just Giving and other donation websites.

Keep an eye on our social media pages for any new campaigns coming up!
