I think we can all agree that the new decade hasn’t got off to the best start.
We began the #CoronaChronicles back in March as a way to keep you all informed with how the Sanctuary was coping during the first national lockdown, hoping this would all be put behind us in a few weeks.
Well, we know what happened next…
I’m sure, at times, we’ve all found it difficult to focus on the positives this year. At the Sanctuary, we’re also very aware that many of our supporters – as well as our own staff members – will no longer be able to enjoy the Christmas they expected due to the new Tier 4 restrictions introduced this week.
May we take this opportunity to say we’re thinking of all of you and wish everyone a happy and healthy Christmas, however you may be able to celebrate. We'd also like to say a big thank you to our equine care staff who will be spending much of the festive period at our sites, whatever the weather, ensuring our rescued residents remain well cared for.
So we’ve decided we’re going to dedicate this final #CoronaChronicles of 2020 to looking back at what, despite all the extraordinary challenges, we’ve been able to achieve this year – and we could not have done any of it without you!
Everything we do is 100% funded by donations, so whether you’ve supported one of our appeals, taken part in an online fundraiser, sponsored an Adoption Star or bought a gift from our online shop – you’re the reason so many rescued horses and donkeys are no longer facing neglect this Christmas.
Here’s what we’ve achieved together:
“I adopt Rumpel, Wiggins and Wacko, seeing pictures of their beautiful faces, reading their stories through all of this and seeing how they just accept life and go on has helped me so much, I am a key worker and so many times I have just wanted to cry, but seeing the beautiful light they bring to this world, their unconditional love and happiness, has helped keep me smiling when everything has become too much.”
Thank you to all our wonderful teams across the Sanctuary, whose aptitude for problem-solving and resilience, have shone as brightly as their dedication towards our rescued horses and donkeys this year. Their hard work has helped us turn your support into these proud achievements.
But this hard work continues into 2021. With restrictions stretching into the future and with Redwings now operating at a deficit for months - potential years to come - we remain vigilant and continue to appeal for your support. Thoughout 2020, we saw an incredible increase in the number of you donating, playing our raffles and shopping online. We can't thank you enough and hope you'll think of us again next year.
If you would like to make a donation over the Christmas period, please be aware that our offices will be closed from Christmas Eve until 4th January, but you can still support us through our website here. During this time, gift shop orders and adoptions will not be processed until the New Year and our welfare line will also be closed. If you would like to report a welfare concern, or always in an emergency, please call the RSPCA 24-hour cruelty line on 0300 1234 999.
From everyone at Redwings, we wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Thank you #RedwingsAngels
