Why we need it?

We rely on fundraising and generous donations from our members and the general public to enable us to continue the valuable work we do in rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming equines in need. Without fundraising we simply would not exist. The money raised goes towards the daily care of all our horses, ponies and donkeys as well as helping to cover the costs of unexpected veterinary bills, maintaining the stables and paddocks and purchasing new equipment such as tack and wheelbarrows without which we could not care for the equines on our yard. If you would like to keep up to date with our work and fundraising activities you can become a member by clicking here or follow us on FB.

How can you fundraise for us?

You can help raise money for us in a number of ways whether you already have fundraising experience or this is your first time, we are here to help and inspire you. We can offer advice and fundraising materials for your event. Sponsored events such as rides, sky-dives, walks and runs are a great way to raise money and get other people involved. If you would prefer to start your fundraising with a smaller simpler event car-boot sales, cake sales and auctions can also raise valuable funds that help us continue our work and are easy to set up and take part in.

If you are organising or taking part in any sponsored event you can download a sponsorship form. The form will help you to get the information about your sponsors that you need to collect the gift-aid.

Donation of Goods

Of course we welcome any financial donations but we are also able to use unwanted gifts and other items in tombolas and raffles, horsy or non horsy! Anyone wishing to donate any unwanted horse equipment in good condition can phone the yard direct to make sure that there are staff on the yard to welcome them. We use the majority of these items on our rescue horses on the yard but others we sell to raise more money.

Horse Rescue Fund Horse Show

This is by far our largest fundraising event, held locally every August or September. Details are available on the ‘News’ page on our website, on FB and www.horsedates.co.uk. We are always looking for help towards this event in many ways.

Our first task is to find individuals or companies willing to sponsor all of our classes and Championships, so if you would like to support us in this way then please contact the yard direct for more details. Your name, your company name or even that of your horse can be printed on the rosette tails and if you wish to provide any promotional material we are willing to display that on the day.

We always need physical help with the setting up of the horse show, arenas and jumps, any help is ALWAYS welcome with this.

Items for our TOMBOLA again are always welcome and we are well known for our large tombola with some fantastic prizes kindly donated from individuals and many top equine companies. If you have any items please feel free to donate them for the tombola.

We always welcome volunteers on the day and anyone who would like to Steward some of the classes or just help on the day is most welcome.

We have a large number of classes for horses so why not bring your equines along. There is even a class for Lorry Dogs too.


Gifts in Wills are by far our largest and most important source of income, and peoples generosity continues for many years after their passing to help many horses in the future.

We welcome old postage stamps and are currently looking for companies to recycle old mobile phones and cartridges.


Companies and individuals can sponsor one of our horses or ponies and this is a lovely way to connect with our equines on a personal level. Sponsorships also make great gifts for family members and animal loving friends.


Anyone wishing to volunteer to fundraise for us is most welcome to. If you need help at an event then please contact us direct. We welcome volunteers at our events such as our show and supermarket collections. From time to time we have volunteers, 16 years old and over on the yard to work alongside our staff, anyone with equine knowledge is an advantage. Please contact the Yard Manager.

Special Occasions

Have you got a birthday or special event coming up? You could ask guests to make a donation to us instead of receiving gifts yourself. You would be helping equines in need to get the care and treatment they need before they are ready to find loving new loan homes. For more information on making donation please see our Donations page.
