Weekend of 20th September 2014
Wellllll, what a weekend. In no particular order with the Thank You’s as they are all greatly appreciated.
Saturday & Sunday our local supporter Wirral Muddy Rugs, had a sale on and dedicated a rail of rugs in the sizes we need to us, so people could buy us a rug at a reduced price, or donate towards a rug. Also a local supporter Kathleen Webb dropped off a donation at our Saughall site. And, locals John Gilbert and Anthony Patterson who set up Parkgate Riding Club, held their first dressage competition donating £1 from every entry to us.
Sunday was a huge day for us, as we knew we were having a couple of very important visitors. But we never expected the day to turn out the way it did, with overwhelming support.
We had a couple of visits from some of our supporters dropping off sacks of food and rugs and saying a quick hello to the horses. Then it was time for our V.I.P’s. Support Adoption for Pets kindly presented us with our first grant cheque for £6850.00 so we can build a much needed new stable block. We are so grateful to all at SAFP and their supporters, the sables will ensure our horses are warm and dry this winter.
We also had a visit from a few trustees of the Rafa Benitez Foundation. Who came to see what we do and meet the horses.
Everyone at Horse Sense Wirral would like to say a HUGE thank you to each and every one of you. Not only have you helped the horses with you kindness, your support helps the whole team to keep going and move forward. WOW an overwhelming weekend.
