Bransby Horses temporarily closes to the public

In light of the recent Tier 4 announcement for the region, Bransby Horses, one of the UK’s largest equine welfare and rescue charities, will be temporarily closing its doors to the public and will not be reopening to the public until 1st April 2021.

The charity had been impacted significantly by the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, with an estimated revenue loss of over £500,000.

During the temporary closure, the charity’s team will continue their round the clock care for the 300 plus equines that live across their two Lincolnshire sites, as well as continuing their external welfare work.

The charity will also be working on making the site even more appealing and enjoyable for supporters when it reopens in April 2021, including the creation of a new Play Park.

Jo Snell, CEO of at Bransby Horses, says: “We know that these temporary measures are the right thing to do to protect our teams and the future of our charity.

“Our Trustees and Senior Leadership Team came to the decision to close until April having considered the lower visitor numbers we usually see during the first months of the year, the ongoing risk COVID-19 brings and the huge financial impact it is having our charity.

“We will miss welcoming loyal and new supporters in early 2021 and greatly look forward to welcoming them back in April for Easter.”

To support the charity during these challenging times, there are a number of ways people can help the charity; supporters are being asked to visit their website to donate, purchase items in the online January sale or sponsor a horse, pony or donkey.
