Give carrots this International Carrot Day

International Carrot Day

Carrot Drop Stops are cropping-up at all five Redwings visitor centres as we get set for International Carrot Day 4th April.

We’re inviting you – our supporters – to mark this day by donating carrots to be distributed among its rescued horses, ponies, donkeys and mules up until 10th April, but also to donate knitted or handcrafted carrots that can be sold in one of the charity’s many fundraising sales.

While carrots are a nutritious snack, it’s important that they are only given to horses and donkeys as occasional treats so be sure to leave your carrot donations at our special Carrot Drop Stops and our teams will ensure our grateful residents get to enjoy them in the most healthy and responsible way.

Alternatively, you can give £1, which could not only fund a tasty treat for a rescued horse but also help in a variety of ways, including one day of antibiotics for a poorly horse, two days of medication for an arthritic horse or a set of disposable overalls to be used by the care teams.

And what better way to use up those round £1 coins before they are phased out then to help towards the care of our rescued residents?

From Friday 31st March to Monday 3rd April, our visitor centres will also have a carrot cake offer in their cafes. But that’s not all, visitors will be able to get their hands on recipe cards with instructions on how to make their very own delicious carrot cake at home – as well as a horse and donkey-friendly version for their four-legged friends!

The celebrations will end on Monday 10th April when each visitor centre will host special carrot-themed activities demonstrating how the generously donated treats will be enjoyed by our horses and donkeys.
