Redwings Horse Sanctuary has launcheda new competition to find its Young Fundraiser of the Year.
This accolade is available to anyone under the age of 16 who has raised money for Redwings in 2016; whether fundraising through a sponsored walk or ride, cake sale, or something weird and wonderful like a horsey dress-up day – the charity wants to hear from you.
There will be two awards, one for Most Money Raised and one for Most Original Idea. The winners will feature in the Spring 2017 issue of the charity’s magazine for young supporters – Young Redwings – and will receive a special certificate plus a year’s sponsorship of the Redwings Adoption Star horse or donkey of their choice.
Redwings’ Head of Fundraising Gemma Walpole said: “Our young supporters are an inspiring bunch who always have loads of brilliant ideas to raise money for our rescued horses and ponies. These awards are our way of shouting about the great fundraising our young supporters do, and saying a big thank you for all their help and support!”
Redwings is home to 1,500 rescued horses, ponies, donkeys and mules at its sites across the UK, with 500 more living out on loan in Guardian homes through the charity’s rehoming scheme. The charity receives no Government funding and is 100% reliant on donations from the public to continue its work of rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming horses.
