12 months of giving: pony sanctuary

For January, faith did a sponsored walk. Today we took the £100 she raised to the Broomfield Pony Sanctuary. This is a sanctuary in Trewellard, Cornwall 'for the protection of horses and ponies who are in need of care or attention as a result of sickness, maltreatment, neglect, or poor circumstances'. We visited today and had a lovely guided tour, we learnt about how ponies come to be taken into care here and how much money and time commitment it takes to look after them.

It is the aim of the sanctuary to rehabilitate horses and ponies to the point where they can be fostered by others (they never sell them), however, some will never be well enough to be fostered so the sanctuary needs support to carry on its great work. If you wish to find out more or donate please follow this link.
