Bertie the pig's story​

Fundraising is a great way to share your passion with others, and you can feel good knowing your donation is going directly to helping animals like Bertie live out the rest of their days in freedom and happiness.

Bertie arrived at Goodheart after being found abandoned at the side of a road. He was just a baby at the time, and as well as being underweight, his little body was covered in ticks. Under the care of our sanctuary team however, he was given the care and attention he needed and made a full recovery. He now has his very own paddock to explore, which he shares with his best buddy Cedric.

Stoke to Stonehenge Cycle Challenge

After witnessing first hand the important work we do, supporter Shaun and his friends took on the challenge of cycling 170 miles, from Stoke-on-Trent to Stonehenge!

Despite gale force winds, driving rain, and having to cycle an extra 30 miles, the team smashed their goal, and in the process raised an amazing £320 for Goodheart Animal Sanctuaries.
