- Horse sanctuary benefits from children’s benevolence
- March 11, 2011 | 0 Responses
Equine insurance customers might be happy to hear that the children at Belbroughton CE Primary School pulled together to support a rescue centre housing 25 horses and ponies.
Animal Sanctuary and Protection was forced to cancel its annual Christmas fundraiser due to the heavy snows in December 2010, reports the Bromsgrove Advertiser.
However, local students baked cakes and biscuits and other goodies to sell and raise cash to back the centre.
Helen Robinson, who works at the school, commented: “The sanctuary relies on donations and fundraising activities in order to maintain food, shelter and medical treatment for the donkeys and ponies cared for.”
Some £200 was raised to help the needy equines housed at the establishment, horse insurancecustomers might be pleased to learn.
Last month, Faye Stacey of the South West Equine Protection group said the number and condition of abandoned ponies roaming on Bodmin Moor was “totally unacceptable”.
