Mane Chance Sanctuary is committed to rescuing and rehabilitating abused, abandoned and old horses, integrating them with the local community. They regularly host visits from terminally ill children, those with additional needs and other disadvantaged youngsters achieving their aim of helping horses help people.

Children exploring the Sight for Surrey Bug Hotel.Several vision impaired children and their families had great fun having a go at various activities that included: grooming the Shetland ponies; poo-picking(!); pond-dipping; making a Sight for Surrey Bug Hotel; painting fairy doors; and walking the ponies. They were very lucky with the weather and everyone had a great time. Sight for Surrey wishes to thank Di and the ladies at Mane Chance for helping make this event possible.Children stroking a horse.

At Sight for Surrey, events like these would be impossible to organise without the generous financial gifts from various trust funds, individual donors and fundraising activities.
