Ways to Support Remus Horse Sanctuary during the Cost-of-Living Squeeze
With household budgets being stretched, Sue Burton, founder of Remus Horse Sanctuary is asking supporters and donors not to forget about them or their horses this winter.
“We know we’re all being stretched financially right now, but some of us are being pushed to the brink. Just £5 will help us and we need your help more than ever right now.”
Remus have also considered alternative ways for people to help them without necessarily making a donation:
- If you’re buying Christmas cards and stocking fillers this year, consider buying from Remus. This year’s Christmas card, painted exclusively for Remus Horse Sanctuary, features rescued Shetland ponies: Damson, April and Mopsey. There is also a new wall calendar for 2023 featuring a different Remus animal on every page. Unlike charity cards and calendars for sale in shops, 100% of the proceeds will go to Remus. Visit their website to shop online.
- Get crafty this Christmas – use your creative skills and host a Christmas craft fair in aid of Remus. If that sounds a little challenging, consider a bake sale at your place of work, with the proceeds going towards Remus.
- You may not be able to give at present, but by remembering Remus in your Will, you’re helping to secure their future. If you’ve not got a Will, take a look at the Free Wills service.
This cost-of-living crisis presents several challenges to Remus as they face rapidly increasing costs; rising food bills for the animals is the chief concern, along with rising energy costs and vets bills. So too is the real terms cut in the value of donations. In addition, demand for rescue support is set to rocket as the cost-of-living squeeze impacts on those people with animals, many of whom were already struggling financially.
