We're still pulling together for our horses and donkeys

During the coronavirus outbreak, Redwings has had to continually adapt and change the way we work. But one thing that hasn’t changed is our responsibility and commitment to every rescued resident in our Sanctuary.

Thankfully, our horses and donkeys know nothing of the changing world beyond their paddock fences. Please help us continue giving them everything they deserve.

We have been amazed by the generosity of our supporters over the last few months. Your response to our emergency COVID-19 appeal has helped to raise much-needed funding when our income from other sources has fallen. And your donations of supplies and treats for our horses – even as you face your own challenges – have been a constant reminder of the love and kindness of our supporters. Thank you.

Now, many may feel that ‘normal’ life is starting to return. But here at Redwings, we will be counting the cost of the pandemic for many months – and even years – to come. For example, having to close our visitor centres, gift shops and cafes over the spring and summer meant we lost income of over £300,000. This is the equivalent of a year’s care for all the donkeys at the Sanctuary and is also how much we usually spend on feed and forage to see our herds through the winter months.

This is one of the greatest challenges we’ve ever faced and we still need your help. Please will you continue to stand by us?

The face of our appeal: Audrey’s message of hope

Sanctuary star Audrey was an obvious choice to become the face of our appeal this autumn. Her amazing story of triumph over adversity and defying the odds has been a great inspiration to us all over the last few months. Audrey is an important reminder that, while we face ongoing challenges because of the pandemic, our horses and donkeys rely on us as much as ever. By donating to Redwings today, you can help change the lives of more horses like Audrey.

Our greatest time of need isn’t over yet. Please help us today.

You can donate online below, or text AUDREY 20 to 70085 to donate £20. All texts cost the donation amount plus a standard rate message.

Thank you.
