Donate in memory or sponsor a Tribute Gift for a loved one

We are always very sad to learn of the death of one of our supporters. Gifts donated in their memory mean a great deal to us. If you would like to speak to someone about making a donation in memory of a loved one, companion animal - cat or dog -or a beloved horse please contact Dawn Witney on 01953 497225.

 

Funeral Collections

When arranging the funeral of a loved one, many people kindly choose to offer donations to a charity in lieu of flowers.  We can now supply Gift Aid envelopes to make such giving easier and to enable us to claim gift aid on the donations, where applicable, increasing their value by 25%.  You may hand the envelopes to your Funeral Director or return them directly to us, at your convenience.

If you would like to order a supply of Gift Aid envelopes please contact Dawn Witney on 01953 497225.

We would like to thank you for thinking of our work to improve the lives of horses at this difficult time.

Tribute gifts

Celebrate with a sponsored gift to help horses.

tributegiftsTribute Gifts are a wonderful way to celebrate the life of a loved one, companion animal - cat or dog - beloved horse or an important event in your life.

Choosing to sponsor one of the beautiful trees that provide protection and shelter for horses recovering in the paddocks at one of our four UK Rescue and Rehoming centres is a wonderful way to pay tribute to a loved one. 

There are a number of ways for our kind supporters to create tributes, which in turn improve the environment of horses and contribute towards the cost of their care.

Tribute Gifts are available for sponsorship at our four Rescue and Rehoming centres: Hall Farm in Snetterton, Penny Farm in Blackpool and Belwade Farm in Aboyne, Scotland and Glenda Spooner Farm in Somerton, Somerset. (If you wish to sponsor a gift at Glenda Spooner Farm please could you write this onto the leaflet).

 

What types of gifts can I sponsor?

Sponsoring a tree at one of our centres is one of many ways to help horses. You can also dedicate benches, bulbs and wild flowers.

Our popular benches are made from recycled soft plastics, which normally go to landfill and are long lasting, maintenance-free and durable.

To enhance the areas surrounding our trees and to help supress weeds, we are planting bulbs and wild flowers. These will help to improve the environment for our horses by encouraging a greater abundance of wildlife.

 

Supporters can choose from the following Tribute Gifts:

Small hedging trees (under 10 years old) can be sponsored for a minimum donation of £85;

Large feature trees (over 10 years old) can be sponsored for a minimum donation of £250;

To sponsor a bench, we require a minimum donation of £500.

(The cost of dedicating a tree or bench in tribute includeds an acrylic plaque with the name of your loved one, plus planting and maintenance for a 10-year period; supporters always recieve an invitation to renew.)

We offer a variety of bulbs for sponsorship:

Snowdrops - 75 for a minimum donation of £21.00

Bluebells - 50 for a minimum donation of £23.00

Narcissi - 50 for a minimum donation of £26.00

Wild flower sowing is also available for a minimum donation of £10


If you would like to sponsor a Tribute Gift, please contact Dawn Witney on 01953 497225 for more information, or you can download our Tribute Gifts leaflet.  Trbute Gifts are also available to sponsor through our Shop.
