What a fantastic bank holiday with proper bank holiday weather! All the horses and ponies are all well. This week, two of our mares, Lulu and Savannah went on their Summer holidays to join some of the other horses and ponies at Burton Park, which are cared for by our volunteer Andrea. It is such a lovely area and they will enjoy their Summer days, relaxing in such beautiful surroundings.
We would like to appeal if anyone could help out with donating a strimmer, or be able to donate their time and bring their own strimmer. We have many fields around Melton Mowbray, which all could do with a strim around the edge of the fields. If you could help in any way, please contact Carole.
Our Fix-It Team held a stall at the Melton Market on Saturday 25th May, which raised an amazing £142.05 for essential yard maintenance. Our volunteer John will be at the Melton Market this coming Saturday 1st June, with the stall (and a delicious homemade cake or two for sale!) to raise funds.
Our volunteer Wendy took the New and Nearly New Equine stall to Rearsby Lodge Riding club at Brooksby college on Sunday which raised an amazing £248.50. A big thank you to Liz Atkins, her committee, and all of the members for their continued support. One of the visitors to the stall was Spirit who was a bit of of bargain hunter and enjoyed looking at the stall! A big thank-you from Wendy and the Pablo’s team as we would not be able to achieve sales like this without donations from kind supporters. If anyone is having a sort out over the school holidays, we still need more riding kit and tack, so please think of Pablos. The New and Nearly New stall will be at Soar Valley Riding club , Quorn, on Sunday 9th June.
We would also like to thank volunteer Tommy (from the Fix-It team) for donating a new Gazebo for the stall, as the previous had an accident last summer (strong gust of wind).
Also on Saturday 8th June, volunteer John will be holding an awareness stall at Arena UK. On the stall we are hoping to sell some delicious homemade cakes on the day, and appeal for anyone out there who could help by donating / making homemade cakes for John to sell and raise much needed funds. If you are able to help, please get in touch with Carole.
A huge thank you to Katie for her kind donations of equine items for the equine stall, and also to Tracey and Oliver for their kind donation of bags of feed and equine items for our stall.
Have a good week
