The Brooke launches ‘Horses in Need’ campaign

The Brooke is the UK's largest overseas equine welfare charity, and it is urging British horse lovers to help needy equines around the world this summer.

July is national ‘Horses in Need’ month. This is the second year of national campaign and the public are being asked to come up with fun fund-raising ideas, to help end the suffering of millions of animals.

Every penny raised will help a needy horse, pony or donkey – £1 could buy seven hoof picks; £5 could pay for 10 anti-rabies vaccinations; £20 could purchase 10 boxes of painkillers. £100 could fund a two-day clinic in a brick kiln in Pakistan; £365 could pay for a mobile vet and training team to be on the road for a week.

If you sign up for Horses in Need 2008, you will automatically be given an online fundraising page, and will be sent a fundraising pack with ideas to get you started. And as a reward for your efforts, The Brooke is also offering prizes to its fundraisers.
