Make it a December to remember with Bransby Horses

The most important gift any of us can hope for at Christmas is warmth, food and to feel the love of our family around us.

With over 900 equines in their care, Bransby Horses near Lincoln provide food, shelter and love to horses, ponies, donkeys and mules around the clock.

Winter is a particularly costly time of year for the animals, who need more supplementary feed and warmth during the colder months.

This December Bransby Horses Home are offering Gift Cards With A Difference as a way to give to that special someone in your life and support the charity at the same time.

Every purchase provides essential care to equines in need, making them a perfect gift for horse lovers.

Shoppers can choose from:

  • A Gift of Food – which provides extra nourishing feeds
  • A Gift of Warmth – which provides a well-fitting rug
  • A Gift of Wellbeing – which provides ongoing treatment and medicine

With prices ranging from £10 to £100, there is something for everyone and every budget.

The cards can be bought online at www.bransbyhorses.co.uk/gcwad or call 01427 788 464 or visit their on-site Gift Shop.

Meanwhile, back on the shelves by popular demand is a heart-warming Christmas book written by Bransby Horses.

Pudding’s Christmas Miracle is a wonderfully uplifting tale, written to raise funds for the charity, while helping to spread the word about the amazing welfare and rescue work they do.

Sally Crawford, Executive Director of Engagement and Income Generation at Bransby Horses, said: “Our work to improve the lives of horses is, sadly, more needed than ever before and through Pudding’s inspirational story, we’re hoping to raise awareness and funds.

“Whether you decide to buy Pudding’s Christmas Miracle storybook, sponsor an equine or make a donation, you’ll make a positive difference and for that we’re truly grateful.”

Pudding’s Christmas Miracle was written in 2020 as a collaborative effort between Bransby Horses staff and primary school teacher Helen Kennedy. It was a huge success selling 2,483 copies and raising £16,316.40 to date.

However, £16,316.40 is just a little more than it costs the charity to care for one horse a year – and Bransby Horses is currently responsible for nearly 1,000 equines.  Added to which the pandemic has cost them in excess of £100,000 in lost fundraising income since March 2020.

Pudding’s Christmas Miracle costs £6.95 from BransbyHorses.co.uk/Pudding or by calling 01427 788 464.
