Carols by Barnlight at Edgar's Mission


World Animal Day 2011

Walk for the Animals

Compassion Art Day 2011

100 pieces of artOver 1,000 people attended Compassion Art Day 2011, with many artists donating the proceeds from the sale of their art to Edgar's Mission. 








Over 100 compassion inspired art creations stood side by side with gentle cows, curious chickens and friendly pigs.

Since their humble beginnings the sanctuary's message of kindness for all animals is resonating well with a public who is increasingly concerned about society's treatment of animals.

"I have been truly touched by the love and dedication people have put into their artworks, with support coming from as far afield as Queensland" said sanctuary founder, Pam Ahern.  "And the overriding message I hope people can come away with from their visit today, is that compassion is just one kind action or thought away for all of us".


Thank - you for joining us and making our Carols by Barnlight such a success!
