Founded in 1968, Bransby Horses is one of the UK’s largest equine welfare and rescue charities, dedicated to improving the lives of horses, ponies, donkeys and mules through rescue, rehabilitation, rehoming, education and providing a safe haven. They have nearly 1,000 equines in their care across two sites in Lincolnshire and in foster homes around the country, many of whom come from situations of neglect and mistreatment.
The charity have been facing the most challenging times since serious flooding of their land due to heavy rainfall in 2019. During the flooding, an additional £200,000 was needed to urgently move some of the equines from the Bransby site to Barlings, and set up temporary facilities there. At the end of 2020, the charity estimated that so far, the COVID-19 pandemic will have cost them around £100,000 in lost fundraising income since the first lockdown in March 2020.
The charity relies solely on support from the general public to continue their mission to improve the lives of horses, ponies, donkeys and mules, and sadly, there are always more equines that require their help. Thanks to continued public support and people remembering them in their Will, Bransby Horses are able to continue with their welfare work and take on more equines in need during what is proving to be the most challenging time in their 52 year history.
Without the legacy income they receive from generous supporters, Bransby Horses simply wouldn’t be able to operate with the same scope or at the same scale as they do. With the impact of COVID-19, they charity are preparing for the toughest year yet for equine rescue and welfare. When you leave a legacy for Bransby Horses, you are making a world of difference to this caring, hard-working charity and all the horses, ponies, donkeys and mules they look after.
