Help Grant A Rescued Horse’s Wish This Christmas

Help grant a rescued horse's wish this Christmas

All the rescued horses and donkeys of Redwings Horse Sanctuary want this Christmas is the chance to continue living a life free of fear and neglect.

Christmas shoppers can help make their wish come true by sponsoring a Redwings “Adoption Star” as a truly unique gift for a loved one, and every penny goes towards their care and that of their four-legged friends at the Sanctuary – of which there are over 1,500!

Sponsorship costs a minimum donation of just £15 a year, and there are 22 adorable Adoption Star horses, ponies and donkeys to choose from, each with their own moving story to tell.

From handsome Shire cross Fox, who lives at Redwings’ Caldecott Visitor Centre, near Great Yarmouth, to adorably dotty pony Cookie, who lives at Redwings’ Aylsham Visitor Centre, north of Norwich, there’s an array of wonderful characters enabling everyone to find the perfect new friend for themselves or a loved one.

Those wishing to sponsor an Adoption Star for Christmas will receive:

  • An adoption pack including a certificate, beautiful photograph and the Adoption Star’s story
  • Postal updates on their adventures and antics at the Sanctuary
  • An invitation to the Adoption Star’s birthday party
  • Access to an online diary featuring photo galleries and blogs about their life at Redwings
  • The chance to visit the Adoption Star for free
  • A Friendship Card to treasure as a reminder of their adoption.

Lynn Cutress, Redwings’ Chief Executive, said: “Christmas is a time when wishes come true – and you can grant a very special one for the rescued horses and donkeys living at Redwings.

“Redwings is a registered charity funded entirely by donations from the public, so by sponsoring one of our Adoption Star horses and donkeys you’re not only purchasing a truly thoughtful and beautiful gift for a loved one, but helping us ensure they and their friends will always have a place of safety and happiness at the Sanctuary.”

To sponsor a Redwings Adoption Star this Christmas, head to www.redwings.org.uk/adoption or call 01508 481000.

Redwings Aylsham in Spa Lane, Aylsham, Norfolk NR11 6UE, and Redwings Caldecott in Beccles Road, Fritton, Norfolk NR31 9EY, are open every Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday (closed Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays), 10am to 4pm – and entry is free!
