Fundraising for 2013
At the end of the 2012 season, we thought we may have a year off from our fundraising events. But in November we heard about a charity which we would dearly like to help - The Gambia Horse and Donkey Trust. Many of the people living in Gambia are poor farmers who rely on the working equines for farming and transport. The animals often provide or help provide the family income, and through education and awareness the lives of the animals can be improved. The bits typically used in The Gambia can cause horrific injuries to animal's mouths, and the trust is working to change these for more humane bits. The Trust believe education is the key to improving the welfare of working equines. They run farmers meetings, a school education programme and a donkey club for the local children. Through the training of farriers, harness makers and paravets the trust can help address problems and create employment.
We raised a total of £1215.00 for The Gambia Horse and Donkey Trust in 2013.
