Each day this week we’ll be featuring one (or two) of our lovely, hard-working and much valued volunteers. Today we have Deanne and Sharan, awesome works guys – we love you! Continue reading

Volunteer Week – Camille

Each day throughout this week we shall feature some of our amazing, tireless and dedicated guys and gals. Find out what volunteering means to our amazing Camille.

Camille

“Hello! My name is Camille, I’m from France and I’m volunteering at Edgar’s Mission five days a week for five months.

I love this place because everyone is really respectful and loving with animals, everyone is just really nice. Volunteering here made me learn a lot about animals, and also about veganism. Like a lot of people, I didn’t really know what it was like to be vegan and why people wanted to be vegan (especially when you were born and raised in a country that loves cheese!) Living surrounded by vegans almost every day has changed my way of seeing things. It made me really aware of the injustice of the lives we give to animals, when all they deserve is love.

“Hi, my name is Charlton. I’m Sonia’s better half. Well I’m 28 years old, love working with my hands, that is why I’m in a trade, and I’m pretty good looking. You can ask Julian [Volunteer Coordinator], he will confirm on the good looking part. As you can also tell I like to have a bit of fun as I believe life is meant to be. Continue reading

Volunteer Week – Rosemary

Each day throughout this week we shall feature some of our amazing, tireless and dedicated guys and gals. Find out what volunteering means to our amazing Rosemary Moore.

Rosemary

“I first encountered Edgar’s Mission five years ago and fell in love immediately. I’m lucky to have flexibility in my work hours and live just an hour’s drive from the farm, which means I currently can spend a day a week volunteering there.

Edgar’s Mission is a truly beautiful place. It’s a place of sanctuary for the animals who live there, as well as a gentle and influential educator on behalf of all farmed animals. It’s also a kind of sanctuary for those of us who feel angry but helpless in the face of so much animal exploitation and neglect. At Edgar’s, your anger can transform into useful activity.

Sonia

“My name is Sonia, my partner Charlton and I have been volunteering at Edgars for nearly a year now and it’s been absolutely amazing! I love travelling – I believe it’s one of life’s most valuable teachers. We just came back from a dream trip to East Africa and were lucky enough to see mountain gorillas and the Big 5! Would definitely consider myself a Wanderluster. Continue reading

Volunteer Week – Lorenzo

Lorenzo

It’s volunteer week, May 11-17!

With it’s theme give happy, live happy, we share with you some stories of the personal journeys our wonderful volunteers have made while contributing to Edgar’s Mission.  The first in our series is from our Italian friend Lorenzo.  English is not Lorenzo’s first language and he asked if we would edit his story because of this, but we couldn’t.  Lorenzo’s beautiful heart shines so brightly we could never improve his sentiment and after reading his piece we are sure you will agree kindness speaks all languages. 

“For many thousands of years our society has built itself, step after step, on the blood, the pain, the struggle and the despair of countless animal beings.  Being a volunteer at Edgar’s Mission, to me, it means to apologise to each one of those animal beings. Continue reading
