A horse treat company is hoping to raise £2,500 to help feed horses in need this winter.
Dr D’s Tasty Treats is giving out rewards in return for donations of £1 or more to its campaign to support Redwings Horse Sanctuary.
These rewards include discounts on Dr D’s products and goody bags from Redwings.
Gemma Walpole, from Redwings, told H&H that they are “delighted” to have been chosen as the company’s charity this winter.
“We are a 100% publicly funded charity and have 1,500 residents living at Redwings, many of whom require special care and special diets, so Dr D’s support means so much and will make such a difference,” she said.
“I’d also like to extend my thanks to everyone who has donated to Dr D’s fundraising campaign so far too, we’re always blown away by people’s generosity and support.”
For £1, you will be added to Dr D’s online hall of fame and receive updates about the horses you have supported as well as a 10% discount.
Pictures of Redwings horses, treat samples, badges, rosettes, crackers and stockings are also among the gifts that donors can receive.
For donations over £25, the company will send a packet of treats to the charity’s horses as well as a packet to your horse.
Redwings has more than 40 high-dependency horses and has centres across Norfolk, Scotland, Warwickshire and Essex.
Established in 1984, it merged with Mountains Animal Sanctuary in Scotland in January 2015 and also has a further 500 rescued equines living out in guardian homes.
The charity is also promoting its rehoming campaign.
“Without our fantastic guardians, Redwings would be so full we would have to turn away horses who desperately need our help,” said Redwings’ Rachel Angell.
“Most horse charities have been working at the limits of their capacity and resources for years now.
“Rehoming is what enables us all to keep making a difference while ensuring the horses we are already responsible for have the secure, happy life we want for them.”
