The International League for the Protection of Horses’ (ILPH) Glenda Spooner Farm, an equine recovery and rehabilitation centre at Hoarwithy in Herefordshire, is open to the public on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 11am to 4pm and is looking for volunteers to act as visitor guides and help in the farm’s gift shop.
The centre is based at a pretty little farm in the hills close to the village of Hoarwithy and is home to 49 horses and ponies, which have been either rescued or gifted to thecharity for various reasons.
“As with all our centres, Glenda Spooner Farm takes in a range of welfare and rehabilitation cases as well as animals which have been gifted to us,” explains ILPH spokesperson Lynda Freebury.
“It’s open to the public twice a week and we are looking for outgoing people who would like to support our work by taking visitors around the farm and introducing them to the horses presently in our care. We also need help in the centre’s gift shop.”
If you are at least 16 years of age and have a couple of hours spare either regularly, or just from time to time, and would like to support the ILPH by becoming a volunteer, please contact Edwina Saunders, chairman of the volunteer team (tel: 01600 750677).
