Each bag of Sanctuary Blend raises money for rescue farm animals at The Retreat Animal Rescue Sanctuary in Kent. Founded in 1989 by the amazing Billy Thompson, The Retreat is either a forever home or a second chance to over 1250 animals and has saved 20,000+ animals since it opened! £1 per bag will be donated to this sanctuary so they can continue to change the lives of so many animals.
