HAPPA’s Development Manager, Julie Pharaoh-Gan, explains further “Like every visitor attraction Halloween half-term is important to us and is a great opportunity to create family fun and raise income. Every penny raised goes directly towards the core mission of rescuing horses and ponies from neglect. This year more than ever our Halloween fundraising is vital. We understand, that for some staying at home feels more safe at the moment, so we have lots to get involved in without going out. For those who wish to come to the Farm we have put a significant number of measures in place for you to not only enjoy your visit, but feel safe too. Whatever

you chose we would just love for you to be involved and support the Charity this Halloween.”
