A Wonderful Day Was Had At Sheep Ahoy!

We held our first event of 2021 on 1st August and what a wonderful day was had by all …. humans and sheep equally enjoyed it.
The weather was against us from the start but we went ahead knowing rain showers were likely during the afternoon. Well I think rain showers was an understatement as the heavens literally opened just as the event started but you all kept coming in to support us regardless of the downpour …. and then, just as quickly as it begun the rain stopped. the sun came out and everyone was able to enjoy the afternoon 🙂
Thank you for visiting us even with rain forecast, many of you coming some distance, what amazing people you all are.
The sheep were pretty well behaved except young Sioux who was determined to get the pick of the feed bags by jumping up to get them! How many times did you hear the words ‘Sioux NO!’ during the afternoon or Dee saying ‘She’s just excited’ … well she was just an excited baby at her first event so who can blame her.
Thanks to all for visiting and all who helped, we couldn’t do any of it without you ❤

SHEEP AHOY CALENDARS 2021

Picture of Sheep Ahoy Calendar
To save spending valuable funds on calendar stock we have used a different approach this year.
Calendars will be printed on demand from our online shop at ASK Online Print and sent directly to you by them. That will not only mean that Sheep Ahoy don’t have to pay for calendars up front but is more environmentally friendly too as we won’t be throwing away any unsold calendars. You’ll also receive them quicker than when Julia posts them out 🤩
A4 calendars are available for £10 each and printed to our vegan standards.
Just click on the link to take a look … thanks 🙂

Heroes For The Animals Pennine Way Walk

EVENT CANCELLED

Unfortunately this event had to be cancelled due to COVID-19 issues.

 

A couple of days ago we eluded to an event that our patron, Rose Wyles, will be undertaking to raise funds for our Land Fund … well here are the details!

Rose will be walking the Penine Way from north to south, a total of 268 miles, to raise funds for Sheep Ahoy.

The event is called ‘Heroes For The Animals Pennine Way Walk’ and will start on the 5th August 2020.

To purchase charity land would be a dream come true, not only because we could then keep all the animals together, but so as we can create an educational centre where people can learn about the rescues but about veganism too.

This is a major event and Rose has support from Vegan and Vegetarian UK, an organisation working to accerate change to a vegan world.

The event is going to be developing continually and further details can be found at:

www.thevegannutritionist.co.uk
www.vavuk.co.uk

The Facebook event is on Rose Wyles page Rose Wyles – The Vegan Nutritionist.

Sheep Ahoy would like to thank Rose and the VaVUK team personnaly for underating this event and supporting the animals 

Charity Patron: Rose Wyles ~ The Vegan Nutritionist

We have some exciting news!

Sheep Ahoy Animal Rescue has it’s first charity patron in the lovely Rose Wyles – The Vegan Nutritionist.

A patron is someone who agrees to lend their name to an organisation as a way of supporting them by helping them get noticed, adding prestige or lending credibility to the cause. Rose certainly does all those things because she has the same vegan values as Sheep Ahoy plus supports our objectives and future plans.

Rose has a healthy following on Twitter and is now managing our Twitter account too which takes the pressue off the rest of the team …. The Sheep Ahoy Twitter account @olisgang has grown from around 45 followers to well over 1000 in the short time that Rose has managed things 

Rose is dedicated to helping raise the profile of our Land Fund project and to raising funds for it too. Watch this space for an update on what she has planned … it’s massive!

Rose is a qualified Nutritionist and is a Vegan, Raw, WFPB & Child Nutrition Consultant so why not visit her at www.thevegannutritionist.co.uk or follow on Twitter @vegannutrition1 for some great dietary tips and recipes!

Thanks Rose for supporting us

NAMING COMPETITION

NAMING COMPETITION UPDATE

This cute boy was named Larry in the naming competition 🙂

This new arrival at Sheep Ahoy was attacked by a dog but the family whose dog attacked him paid for vet treatment and have now been allowed to have him and bring to us.

Lambie has travelled all the way from Wales and is settling in well.

The dog attack literally saved his life as his friends have gone to slaughter

Just to explain about the dog attack, the owners had visited the area for years and the garden of the cottage they stay is enclosed by a high fence …. this was an unfortunate incident but the owners did everything in their power to save this lamb and they did in the end 

All suggested names will be numbered and go into a random generator and which ever name is picked will become his name.

It’s £5 per name.

To take part just click here to donate the £5 and add the name in the ‘Add a Note’ section.

Good Luck!

Buy The Gang a Bale of Hay for £5

Winter is an expensive season for us as we give the gang hay bales to make sure their tummys are full.

Our ‘Buy The Gang a Bale of Hay’ campaign last year was so successful in helping with our winter hay bill that we are launching it again for 2019.

If you buy a bale of hay then you will be tagged in the Facebook/Instagram post when it is delivered to the Gang so you get to see who eats it too!

If anyone would like to pay for a hay bale then please click on the ‘Buy a Bale’ link below where you can pay via PayPal or debit card. Each hay bale costs £5.

Thank ewe from us all.
