On the 14th and 21st of September we were fortunate to have teams of John Curtin Week volunteers visit the Sanctuary. Both teams came armed with enthusiasm and energy and undertook a range of important jobs in the Valley.
Team 1 worked on fixing fences, moving spent straw bedding and cleaning out the pen of Nicholas the Ram.
Team 2 fixed fences and moved spent straw and also managed to rake areas of leaves into piles to allow safe burning in readiness for bushfire season.
Both teams worked extremely hard. They had a well earned break at lunch and enjoyed a range of tasty, cruelty free platters.
Following lunch, participants had the opportunity to meet the animals during a Sanctuary tour – a great way to finish up a busy day.
Thanks very much JCW volunteers for joining us this year. We look forward to seeing you again next year!
