Sarah is a keen wildlife gardener and blogger and has worked with the charity Garden Organic at Live Events around the country, promoting organic gardening and chatting with the public about environmentally friendly pest control and gardening for wildlife.
She has also been promoting the Heritage Seed Library and has been involved in publicising Garden Organic’s ‘One Pot Pledge’ Campaign – getting kids planting rocket and chard so they can enjoy eating something they have grown themselves.
In the past, Sarah has volunteered with The Conservation Volunteers in coastal regions of Wales and also with Wildlife Aid in Surrey – which was the home of Animal Planet’s popular Wildlife SOS series. Here her duties included 'checking in' the patients from members of the public, cleaning and feeding bird enclosures, weighing hedgehogs, handling and feeding the owls, and cleaning the fox and badger cub pens. The toughest challenge was ignoring their pleas for attention, including their efforts to climb her legs whilst sweeping!
She is a long-time supporter of Sightsavers International and with a great team, raised money for the charity by climbing the three Highest Peaks in Great Britain – Scafell Pike in England, Mount Snowdon in Wales and Ben Nevis in Scotland.
She is also a long-time supporter of The Brooke, a charity which improves the lives of working horses, donkeys and mules - and also the lives of the people who depend upon them - in some of the world’s poorest communities.
Closer to home she supports Haven House Children’s Hospice, a wonderful place that supports families and cares for children and young-people with life-limiting conditions.
