Furthermore, our Christmas Gift Shop is now available online with some lovely gift items including stocking fillers, Christmas cards and of course our new wall calendar for 2020.

Sue Burton, Founder of Remus Horse Sanctuary said, “Our gift packs are very popular and great value at just £8.99 and our Plum Puddings always sell out really quickly – they come in three different sizes.”

The plum puddings are light and delicious, full of luxury fruits and nuts soaked in plenty of brandy and dry sherry. They range from £2.25 for the mini pud to £8.50 for the largest.

The online gift shop also features clotted cream shortbread, clotted cream fudge, notepads, pens and pencils and – new for 2019 – tins of shortbread buttons with a choice of picture on the lid, including puppies, kittens and of course horses! The shortbread tins cost just £3.50.

And last but not least, the beautiful 2020 Wall Calendar is packed full of pictures of your favourite Remus animals on every page. The calendar is A4, wirobound with a hanging clip and comes with an A4 envelope.

“As always,” concluded Sue, “we are deeply indebted for everyone’s support. Every year the charity faces the threat of closure due to spiralling costs and we couldn’t continue our rescue work without your help.”
