Treats not Tricks this Halloween at HAPPA


October 5, 2021



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 Saturday 23rd October visitors to HAPPA will be able to take part in the Thursden Valley Goblin Trail and Halloween themed Crafts; follow the Goblin Trail around the stable yard to locate the Goblin’s keys, find the key to unlock the treasure trove and chose your gift. Children of all ages can also choose to design and make their very own Trick or Treat bag.

Anyone visiting HAPPA throughout October will also be able to sponsor a horse or pony for the special offer of just £35 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 added 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.

On Saturday 30th 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 children’s buffet is included in the ticket price and adults can bring their own bottle.

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 tough for us all, even the horses missed out of the usual frivolity that comes at this time of year. This year we need to make up for lost time and have a fang-tastic Halloween. We hope that families can come and indulge in a little Halloween fun and have a great day or evening at the Farm. The added bonus is that everyone doing so will be supporting the Charity and helping HAPPA to get through the challenging winter months.”
