We are living in challenging times, with much uncertainty, but fundraising is still possible, whether it's a virtual event, bike ride or even kayaking up the River Thames as one of our supporters has done!

We are enormously grateful to all those that fundraise for us - any money you raise enables us to continue providing vital care and support to some of the most vulnerable people in our community. 

As we adjust to the 'new normal' we are starting to add some virtual fundraising events to our calendar and recently held our first ever virtual run - the 'Aspens Halloween Spooky 5K', which was a great success. Keep watching our website and social media for details of more exciting virtual events for you to join in with, coming up soon!

Sponsor an Aspens Animal

Our site at Pembury used to be a farm and we do all we can to keep the farming spirit alive. Among the animals living here we have rabbits of all shapes and sizes, donkeys, chickens, guinea pigs and a large pig called Valerie, who rules the roost - though don't tell that to our resident rooster, who crows from sunrise to sunset every day to keep us alert!

The people who use our services love to look after the animals and we also welcome visits from the public, whether they be walking their dog on our unspoiled farmland or grabbing a coffee in the Bluebell Cafe.

Why not get involved by sponsoring an Aspens animal? You'll receive a certificate, your name will be on a thank you board by their living quarters and, of course, you can come visit your sponsored animal (subject to current Covid-19 guidelines).

Contact [email protected] to find out how you can sponsor your own Aspens Animal.
