Winter Hay Appeal and Two New Events

Remus Horse Sanctuary has launched an appeal to help raise extra funds for hay this winter.

Unfortunately, the Sanctuary has been facing a shortage of hay due to the extremely wet weather conditions. As a result of the sustained flooding from over the last 3 months, they have had to use much more of their hay supplies than usual to ensure their rescued and elderly residents are kept well fed.

As Remus’ work is 100% funded by donations from the public, the extra spend has put further pressure on their already tight budgets, which have still not recovered: first from the impact of the Coronavirus lockdowns and second by Storm Eunice which caused £40,000 worth of devastation when it blew entire field shelters over fences, crashing and smashing them, and taking roofs off the buildings.

Sue Burton, Founder of Remus Horse Sanctuary, said: “On average, we spend around £6,000 on hay and feed every single month. As you can imagine, we plan our supplies carefully, but each winter we see prices increasing made worse by the weather, which obviously has an impact on us here.”

“We would like to urge anyone who can consider making a donation, to do so now to ensure we can purchase the extra supplies we need to continue to provide the very specialist care for our rescued horses, donkeys and ponies.”

To donate to the Remus’ hay appeal, please visit their JustGiving page or telephone the Sanctuary directly on 01277 356191.
