You can make a difference by donating your time

Could you donate your time and effort to The Mare and Foal Sanctuary?

Are you looking to learn new skills, gain valuable retail experience, make friends and improve your job prospects?

You can do all this and more while directly contributing to the care of our rescued horses. We have a variety of volunteer roles at the sanctuary for people from all walks of life.

Retail volunteer

We need volunteers to help us operate and organise our charity shops in Devon. Whatever time you can offer us, working in the shops can be rewarding and interesting. It’s also a great way for those looking to get back into work to gain valuable experience.

Online listing volunteer

If you have an interest in unusual or sought-after items and are a confident Ebay user, we have the opportunity for you! Immerse yourself in our wonderful pre-loved goods to raise funds for the ponies in our care.

Warehouse volunteer

We need help to sort, price and prepare our pre-loved goods for sale. Or you could assist our van driver by helping to prepare deliveries to one of our charity shops.

Sanctuary care volunteer

Working with our Sanctuary Care teams is hard work but very rewarding. We welcome people with practical equine skills to work alongside our grooms. Full training is provided. This role does not involve riding.

Maintenance volunteer

There’s always something that needs tweaking or repairing at our sanctuaries. For example, cutting the grass, checking the fencing, painting and plumbing. If you have maintenance experience, we’d love to hear from you.

Events volunteer

Volunteer at one of our open days or at an external event like the Devon Country Show.
