Corporate Membership

A foreword by our patron - Rt. Hon Ann Widdecombe

Dear All

Ann with her two adopted goats Nadia and Natalie

I would like to introduce you to one of the charities that I like to support.  Buttercups Sanctuary for Goats at Boughton Monchelsea in Kent was established in 1989 by Bob and Valerie Hitch when they took just two goats into care that needed a good home.  Shortly after, the RSPCA contacted them to care for another that was found abandoned in a field.

Because there was not a centre for goats suffering from cruelty, neglect and abandonment it was not long before goats started to arrive in large numbers.  So much so, in 2003 charitable status was sought.  Buttercups is to date, the only registered goat charity in the whole of the UK that takes into care goats needing help, providing shelter and welfare after cruelty and suffering.  The numbers at the Sanctuary are always well over one hundred, many are old, have past injuries, or are not suitable for re-homing.

Finding the funding for future expansion, improvements and after care is always a constant source of concern.

I therefore invite you to join me in supporting Buttercups by considering becoming a Corporate Member of the charity, with the minimum donation being £100 per annum.  In recognition of your support you will receive a framed certificate which we hope you may wish to display for the benefit of the public or at your place of work for members of your staff to see, along with a link to your service being provided on the Buttercups Website.

Please join me now in helping Buttercups in all their future endeavours.

Yours sincerely

The Rt Hon Ann Widdecombe

Join one of our popular Corporate Membership Schemes so as to promote your business, treat your staff & entertain your clients.  We have designed three benefits that your company may enjoy depending on what annual donation you wish to give.  The three schemes as set out below are; Silver, Gold and Platinum.

The Silver Award, for a minimum annual donation of £100, your company logo will be advertised on our website together with a paragraph of up to 250 words, highlighting the work of your company.  You will also receive a certificate (or certificates) that you may wish to dispaly within your company, promoting your support of a Charitable cause.  You will also recieve an adoption for one of our goats.  From this you get a lovely personalised certificate to put on display, a postcard, together with a letter from the goat and a quarterly newsletter.

The Gold Award, for a minimum annual donation of £500 or more, includes all of the above together with a "Walking with Goats Experience" for you, your staff and their families.  You will receive a personalised introduction and tour of the sanctuary.  We can provide refreshmets, and the opporunity to hand feed the goats with bags of feed from a secure area.

The Platinum Award, is for a minimum annual donation of £1000.  Again everything as in the Silver and Gold awards, but in a ddition we can tailor make your visit to your wishes.  After the goat walk, a cream tea of scones, sandwiches and cakes, together with hot and cold drinks can be provided.  There will also be an opportunity for a one to one hands on experience with a member of staff, which can include grooming the goats.


A full day, morning or afternoon team building exercise.  Join our team of experienced goat keepers looking after and caring for the goats.  Getting out from being behind a desk into the fresh air, mucking out the pens, sweeping, and feeding hay to 150 goats.  There are always tough jobs that require doing, clearing back overgrown footpaths and overhanging branches around the hay fields.  These are but a few ideas and as mentioned everything can be adjusted to meet your requirements.
