Barby Keel's Open day Fund

This appeal has been started to help the Sanctuary to recover from the cancellation of our 2018 Big Open Day (Summer Fete) due to the closure of Watermill Lane for roadworks.

Please help!

You can also support the sanctuary by donating cash or cheques at our charity shop or by visiting the sanctuary on Sunday Afternoons 2-5pm. 

Raise funds for the Barby Keel Animal Sanctuary every time you shop online.  It's free to register and won't cost you anything extra.

The Giving Machine


Barby Keel Health and Safety Campaign.

We need to raise £15,000 to enable us to comply with the new health and safety regulations.  We have to meet these criteria in order to continue to welcome visitors to the sanctuary.  These new requirements include the installation of a sink with taps by the entrance, replacing the floor in the toilets and putting in place new double fencing around all the animals and birds pens.

William has very kindly set up an online collection for us through GoFundMe. Please click on the link below to donate online (card payments only).

Cheques and cash can be handed in at the Barby Keel Charity Shop or taken directly to the sanctuary in Freezeland Lane, Sidley.


Thank you from Barby Keel, all her 'Motley Crew' and all the animals.
