Adorable donkey Dotty is our Adoption Star of the Month!
By shopping with Redwings, you're helping us care for our 1,500 horses, ponies, donkeys and mules!
Almost two months in and, like everyone, we’re counting the cost of the coronavirus lockdown.
Being 100% funded by donations, and with 1,500 rescued horses and donkeys relying on us every day, we’ve always been very financially prudent and made provisions for extraordinary situations.
However, little could we have predicted that a human pandemic would be the situation to pitch us into one of the most challenging periods in our history.
While our forward planning leaves Redwings in the best position possible to weather the current storm, if predictions about the ongoing economic impact of coronavirus are even partly true, then we are likely to face a funding deficit.
Being a larger charity doesn’t make you immune. The bigger the herd, the bigger the challenge and, while we know many people are facing their own trials at this difficult time, we would ask anyone who can to consider making a donation to our emergency coronavirus appeal.

Main 2 - CoronaChronicles Week 7 blog May 2020.JPG The soaring price of disinfectant has impacted our costs.
Here’s a rundown of how the outbreak has been impacting our fundraising:
While the challenges continue to mount, we have also been incredibly heartened by the response to our emergency appeal so far, as well as the kind donations of hay, feed, rugs and even carrots we’ve received from local businesses – we can’t thank you enough!
Just this week, our headquarters in Norfolk received a sizeable donation of carrots, apples and parsnips from Brakes Foodservice, which were about to go to waste. These make tasty treats for our horses, so our care team has been grating them to put into feeds and to give out with medication for the patients in our Horse Hospital. They even made horse-friendly ice lollies out of them during the recent hot weather!
We also received an incredible surprise from equine feed producer Spillers, who have donated £2,000 worth of feed to support our horses through the lockdown. Spillers have been supporters of Redwings for many years – our miniature Shetland pony Moses recently featured in promotions for Spillers’ Happy Hoof feed.
As well as donating to our emergency appeal, there are many ways you can support Redwings – even from the comfort of your own home! Click here to find out how you can get involved and ensure we can continue to give our rescued horses and donkeys all the care they need. Thank you #RedwingsAngels.
