HAPPA (Horses and Ponies Protection Association) are proud to be hosting a range of Halloween activities for families to enjoy this October half-term, all to raise funds to continue to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome horses and donkeys. All activities will be held at the Charity’s Shores Hey Farm, Briercliffe, Burnley, BB10 3QU throughout the October half-term week.

Starting on Friday 21st October the Charity is hosting a Clairvoyant Night for adults in The Café. There are a few tickets remaining for this event which includes a gala buffet.

Visitors to HAPPA will be able to take part in the Goblin Trail Part 2 Goblin’s Revenge every day throughout the half-term. Following the popularity of this fun activity last year the Thursden Valley Goblins are back with a new trail, a prize bag is available- so long as you get their questions correct!

HAPPA’s educational programme has a jam-packed week with Own a Pony Day and Beginners Guides to Horse & Pony Care, a great way to come and learn all about how to care for a horse or pony correctly with interactive sessions. On Tuesday 25th, Wednesday 26 and Thursday 27th October the Team will also be hosting Pony Grooming Sessions, allowing adults and children the opportunity to get up close and hands on with HAPPA’s ponies.

On Thursday 27th October children of all ages can also choose to design and make their very own Trick or Treat bag in the Farm’s Activity Room.

On Friday 28th October dig out your best Halloween costumes for the Halloween Party for families. Held in The Café from 6.30pm-9pm join our team for fun, games, and a Halloween disco with prizes for the best children’s and adult’s fancy dress up for grabs. A buffet is included in the ticket price and adults can bring their own bottle.

Anyone visiting HAPPA throughout October will also be able to sponsor a horse or pony for the special offer of just £40 for the year. Sponsoring a HAPPA horse is a great way to support the Charity and follow your chosen horse’s Rehabilitation Journey. With the bonus of this special offer being presented in a fiendishly decorated pack, an ideal gift for any equine enthusiast, available to purchase at The Fussy Filly during opening times.

Julie Pharaoh-Gan, HAPPA’s Head of Marketing and Fundraising says “The Team simply cannot wait to celebrate Halloween with all our supporters and customers. Last year was brilliant, so this year we are back with all the fang-tastic fun that is expected at Halloween. We hope that families can come and indulge and have a great day or evening at the Farm. The bonus is that everyone doing so will be supporting the Charity and helping HAPPA to get through the challenging winter months.”
