Impact of COVID 19 on Small Charities
We wish to update you on the impact Covid 19 is having on the Racehorse Rescue Centre
We have been hit very hard due to the way we have successfully run the charity for the last 10 years by using volunteers that have now been stopped attending by the relevant organisations. We do hope to pull through this but we will need help.
We have lost 90% of our workforce due to the cancellation of all work placements by colleges, universities, probation services and social services. Volunteers from Europe have had to cancel their placements. Local volunteers that come regularly to the centre have been forced to stop due to work commitments in the NHS or have medical conditions that would put them at risk.
We have lost 100% of our total funding due to cancellations of events where we could fundraise for the rest of the year. Supporters of the charity are struggling themselves and are unsure of their future making them cut back on spending.
We have had to close the Centre to visitors. Movement of horses has stopped. All programs have ceased until the end of September 2020 with a review then whether to open or not. This also includes the education department.
We have no rescue package and the animals still need feeding and bedding.
We are running out off supplies fast.
These are difficult times for all now but if your in a position to help then please do by donating feed to the Centre from the list below. Some are specialist feeds for Peak as he needs these to survive.
If your local then please get in touch if you think you can help in any way.
We have had to self isolate at the Centre due to Nigel being in the high risk category with stage 3 kidney disease and chronic cough and are struggling personally.
For those who can help financially please, every £/$ will help. We know we have supporters all over the world and we are asking for your help now. Please click on the donate button and give what you can.
We need to continue to provide veterinary, Farrier’s and dental care, feed and bedding, land rent and bills for the horses for the next 6 months at a cost of £10,000
