Help out at the trust
- we have several wonderful volunteers who come to the rescue on a weekly basis and help with some of the daily tasks. But no day is ever quiet here and there is always more work to be done than hours in a day. We could always use your help in many different areas. You would be welcome to spend an hour or two (or more) to help with cleaning up, feeding animals, mending fences, grooming animals, ext.. Any level of horse knowledge (beginner to expert) is welcome and any level of time commitment.
Organize an Event
- Fundraising is what enables us to keep the animals fed and in proper health. But what better way to raise money than to do it with events that connect the community and create memorable days and evenings. We are in the beginning phases of organizing our events for the coming year. As spare time is a rarity with so many horses and ponies on the farm, we need your help to assist in organizing a charity event. Please contact us if you can help us with this rewarding task.
Host an Event
- Do you have a venue available that could host one of our charity events. Please take a look at our events page and see what kind of events we usually host. or if you have an idea for a new event we are open to suggestions.
Hold your own mini fundraiser
Hold your own fundraiser and help Epona Trust. Here are a few ideas to get you started, but be as creative as you want!
Ø Do something active: arrange a sponsored walk, run, cycle or swim; organise a friendly golf or football tournament and charge individuals/teams to enter
Ø Be the hostess with the mostess: host a coffee morning, a themed dinner party, a BBQ or a garden tea party and get your friends and family to pay to come along and take part
Ø Take it to the workplace: have a bake or cake sale during an office coffee break; donate a day?s wages and ask your employer to match your donation.
Ø Just lose it: Get sponsored to shave your head, get your legs waxed (gentlemen) or ?lose the noise? and arrange a sponsored silence for the kids!
