It’s Rumpel’s birthday party and you’re invited!
On Sunday 13th July, Adoption horse Rumpel will be celebrating his seventh birthday at the Oxhill Visitor Centre with a fun-filled party and he’d love you to celebrate with him by coming along. Entry is free, so why not also bring your family and friends to make the day extra special?
Rumpel’s party will start at 11am with a special grooming session to make sure he is looking his birthday best, especially as at 1pm the handsome chap will lead a special parade.
Following the parade, Rumpel will tuck into a delicious birthday cake made from his most favourite horsey-treats!
As well as an opportunity to give Rumpel lots of pats and attention on his special day, guests will also be treated to an appearance from our mascots Red and Wings, who will arrive in time for a game of pass the parcel, and a quiz trail around the centre all about Rumpel. Make sure you collect your quiz sheets from the Visitor Centre as there will be a chance to win a prize!
If you haven’t already adopted Rumpel, you are still welcome to come along to his party. Also why not take a look at one of our adoption packs? The Redwings Adoption Club is a fun way to support and be part of our charity, and an adoption makes a great gift – especially if, like Rumpel, you have a loved one’s birthday coming up!
If you’re unable to attend the birthday party, but would like to donate some yummy treats for Rumpel on his special day follow this link to find out more.
For more information about visiting us, telephone 0870 040 0033 or email email@example.com. We hope you to see you at the party!
Please note: Our playground is currently out of action while we make some repairs, we are very sorry for any inconvenience caused and hope it will be open again very soon!
