Adopters provide a helping hoof!

Two long-term supporters of Redwings' Adoption Stars have gone the extra mile to care for their sponsored horses and their friends.

Peter and his family (pictured above) visit Redwings Caldecott every year where his daughter Keely sponsors Adoption Star Victoria. During each visit, Peter presents our team with a cheque for money he has raised through a tombola he hosts at local car boot sales. 

This summer, Peter donated £18, but his total contributions over the years now total over £200! This great total could pay for 20 stables to be filled with comfy bedding, and even £18 could fund at least three nutritious feeds for a rescued horse. Every penny really does help! 

Peter said: “My daughter used to sponsor Adoption Star Darcey, but when she sadly died she went on to sponsor Victoria. She is a lovely horse; we love to visit her and see all the horses enjoying time in their paddocks. I think it’s great what Redwings does and I’m happy to carry on helping where I can.” 

Meanwhile, fellow long-term supporter Margaret (pictured above) kindly donated £100 during Adoption Star Sampson's birthday party. Margaret, who with her husband has been sponsoring Redwings' horses since 1994, was the lucky winner of one of our regular raffle prize draws and decided to donate some of her winnings to Redwings.

Selling raffle tickets for our prize draws is a great and easy way to help raise funds for Redwings. If you would like to be sent a set of tickets to sell, or would like to purchase some yourself, please call 01508 481000 or email
