Our visitor centres have been closed since December following a year of disrupted opening due to coronavirus restrictions. We estimate the disruption to our centres saw us lose almost £400,000 in fundraising income in 2020 – a major amount for our charity, which is 100% funded by donations.

Debbie Scott, Head of Fundraising, said: “We’re delighted to be able to welcome our supporters back and see them enjoy spending time with our rescued horses and donkeys again. As well as a major source of income, our visitor centres are one of the key ways we share our work and build relationships with our supporters. Traditionally, 60% of the new donors we record every year decide to support us because they’ve enjoyed a day out at one of our visitor centres, but this number fell to 10% in 2020. This means we could be counting the cost of closure for years to come.

“We encourage anyone in search of a tranquil place for a walk with the family, to shop or to eat to think about paying us a visit. With lots of open space, free parking, a fresh menu in our cafes and new pet and homeware lines in the gift shops, Redwings is a safe and unique destination with something for everyone.”
