It was good to visit the Caenhill Countryside Centre and visit my sponsored turkey called Tinsel. He is growing fast and to get him in the mood I brought him down some Christmas decorations. He enjoyed but think he was looking for some feed.

The Centre is being set up to help educated children about farming & the countryside centre and are looking for sponsorship for its animals so it was good to be able to help & sponsor a turkey.

My adopted turkey named Tinsel

tinsel the tukeyIt was great to visit the Caenhill Countryside Centre today to see my adopted turkey Tinsel and get a few photos taken. I cannot believe how fast tinsel is growing and he is enjoying the freedom of walking around the farm and enjoying the fact that Christmas will not mean he will be Christmas dinner!.

I came across tinsel by chance and so please that the Centre took in my turkey. The Centre is set up to teach children about the countryside and farming. They are run by volunteers and looking for people to sponsor animals (pigs, goats, cattle, hens, turkeys, ducks and a donkey looking for sponsorship) so they can be housed and fed so children have a chance to get to learn about animals. A very worthy cause and looking to make a special fun christmas video at the farm with the animals and volunteers. Let me know if you want to take part.

If you want to sponsor an animal drop a line to helie@caenhillcc.org.uk or visit their website http://www.caenhillcc.org.uk/

A few photos from the photo shoot - the volunteers and of course tinsel

Tinsel the turkey is putting on weight

1-IMG 8798Pleased to be able to sponsor a turkey at the Caenhill Countryside Centre not to eat but to save and become a farm animal which will be used to educate children about the farm life. I came across the turkey when it was young and surprised at how different it was as a chick.

I dropped in to see how tinsel the turkey is doing and was good to see how tame it was and now freely running around the barn. It has put on 2kg in weight a bit like me!

If you want to know more about my turkey sponsorship drop me a line.

I was also lucky enough to meet Sarah Wixon landlady of the Southgate Inn Devizes. Who did a worth while fundraiser for breast cancer awareness on 13 October. Well done Sarah.

Mr Christmas saves a turkey for Xmas

I went along to visit the Caenhill Countryside Centre recently and was pleased to be greeted by a young chick who was very cute.(That is  a feathered bird by the way!) It let me pick it up and was very chirpy.

I went to find Helie who runs the project and was amazed to be told the chick was a young turkey. I asked what it was doing at the farm and of course the reply came that it was being reared for Christmas dinner. I should not have been shocked but taken aback, so much so that I asked if I could sponsor the turkey and save him from being Christmas dinner, I wanted it to become a farm pet. I know they have had people sponsor rescue hens so was it worth asking. I was pleased to be told I could and they would keep the turkey for me. I intend to drop in and see the young turkey grow.  The farm is doing a great thing by educating children and of course me who now knows what a young turkey looks like!

I am proud to have saved a turkey for Christmas.. now what should I call my turkey... ideas please?

Please feedback your thoughts
