Find out what’s been happening this week at Hopefield Animal Sanctuary from Sophie Kemp, with its Easter news and a new arrival.

It's been an incredibly busy week down at the sanctuary.

With the Easter holidays taking place, it's amazing to see so many visitors down here. As we're a charity and do not receive any funding, we rely on visitors and donations to fund the work that we do for our animals.

This week, we'd like to introduce you to Spartan, our newest gentle giant.

Sadly, his owners passed away, and without finding him a new home to go to, he would have been put to sleep.

We were more than happy to provide him with a home for the rest of his life, and he's settled in really well!

He has a very loving nature, and is enjoying meeting all the lovely visitors.

This Sunday, we're holding our Easter Fun Day from 11am- 4pm.

We'll have inflatables, the Easter Bunny, Easter Egg trail, special appearances from Princess Elsa and Spiderman, and SO much more! Entry fees remain the same, although there is an additional charge of £2 per child for the Easter Egg trail.

We can't wait to see you all down here for the day, and look forward to sharing our next update with you in a week!
