Date: Tomorrow, 27th November 2021.

Time: 5:30 - 8:30 pm.

Location: Possum Valley Animal Sanctuary, Mount Helena.

Join us at Possum Valley Animal Sanctuary for ‘Carols in the Valley’

Come along for a picnic with some of our rescued animal friends while enjoying festive tunes in the peaceful surrounds of the Valley of Hope.

There will be a cruelty free sausage sizzle, bake sale, PVAS merchandise and a nativity. Santa may also be making an appearance and taking short tours to visit his deer helpers, Elen and Freya!

Due to fire restrictions, flame free candles will be available for a gold coin donation at the gate.

For those wishing to bring our animal residents Christmas gifts, a tree will be available for placement of non-perishable items such as tinned peas and corn, parrot seed, Trill seed sticks, chicken grain, laundry liquid, clean towels and flat sheets. Fresh produce including apples, carrots, sweet potatoes and pumpkins are also welcomed.

Tickets are only $10 adults and $5 for children (under 2’s are free).

All funds raised go to helping over 230 rescued native and farm animals in our care.

Merry Christmas!
