What is this?

On the first working Monday of every month (Monday is one of my busiest days) I will donate the daily income of Chocolate Tortoise to a selected charity, and post to this blog detailing the charity chosen. This blog is not intended to tell the world how generous I am. I am less generous than many people. The blog is intended to firstly log who I have donated to, and secondly to hopefully inspire others to do the same, or similar. For more information, see my first post.

February 2015 - Foal Farm Animal Rescue Centre

The chosen charity for February 2015 is Foal Farm.

This is a local rescue centre to me. I don't know very much about it other than the fact that I often pass their van when it is parked outside the vets in Westerham, but it looks a well run place with a great heart. I like the fact that their website looks nice and most importantly is kept up to date!


After my donation, I did get a nice 'thank you' email which had a bit more info on the place, reproduced here for anyone looking to find out more:

The animals here are kept on a 26 acre farm where they are neutered, micro chipped, vaccinated and given any other medical assistance necessary.  Dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs and other small animals are then placed in secure and loving vetted homes.


Horses, donkeys, cows, pigs, sheep, goats, chickens, ducks and geese spend their natural lives at Foal Farm and no healthy animal is ever destroyed.  If no home can be found the animal becomes a resident for the rest of its life.


Foal Farm relies entirely on voluntary contributions, legacies and money made from fundraising
