Did you know?
All communication that you receive from Redwings, emails, letters or phone calls, all comes from the small team at our Hapton HQ.
We never engage agencies to fundraise for us; that means we do not cold call, knock on doors or hold street collections. We try our best to always be professional and respectful in our fundraising, and are members of the FRSB (Fundraising Standards Board) and the IOF (Institute of Fundraising).
We always do our best to fundraise and communicate with our supporters openly and honestly. If you have any feedback about our charity please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Board and Chief Executive
The Redwings Trustees have regular management board meetings, which set and monitor the strategy for Redwings, as well as a Finance Sub Committee, which sets and monitors the budgets to run the charity. Prior to each Trustee starting their role, they sign a Code of Conduct which you can read here.
Our Chief Executive Lynn Cutress was appointed in 2006, and, with colleagues’ support, is responsible for managing the day-to-day running of Redwings; including our resources, communications, fundraising and the operational management of our veterinary and horse care team, as well as our essential welfare work. We try to keep our back office costs low and focus our expenditure on our beloved horses and donkeys!
