Redwings Horse Sanctuary has received a donation of £1,784 from the National Office of Animal Health (NOAH).

NOAH represents the animal medicine industry by working to promote the benefit of safe, quality medicines.

For every Compendium of Datasheets for Animal Medicines that it sold in 2010, NOAH donated £1 to the charity.

Chief executive of NOAH, Philip Sketchley said: “NOAH is delighted to be supporting Redwings’ work improving the quality of life for horses, through its rescue work and particularly by sharing knowledge and expertise on how to keep horses healthy and happy.”

NOAH also donated £3,220 raised from an annual dinner raffle last year.

Richard Ewles of Redwings said: “Redwings relies totally on donations so it was a great day for us.

“We really appreciated that NOAH had chosen Redwings as one of the charities it supports as we recognise that they, like us, are fully committed to what is best for the animals.”
