What a fantastic night we had on Friday 27th February at The Melton British Legion with the Beatles Tribute band The upBeatles, and the Elvis impersonator!! A big thank you to all those that supported the evening and a extra special thank you to the band and Elvis impersonator who both very generously give their time for free which helped to raise a fantastic £560 on the night.
Our next fundraising event is this Thursday 12th March with a Psychic Night with Bob Perris. Tickets for this night are only £8, so come along to Meltons Bar on Church Street in Melton Mowbray. Tickets can be purchased in advance for this very popular event or just come along on the night.
A big thank you to our Fix It Team who have erected a new field shelter and store at one of our off-site fields. Another great job done and it is being put to good use and appreciated by the horses and ponies that live on that site.
We are still are looking for local approved foster homes for some of our young ponies who are still looking for that special home for them to share their lives with. If you are interested to find out more, please give Carole a call.
A big thank you to Jenny and the girls at Brooksby Equestrian Collage for holding a Fancy Dress Dressage on Sunday 1st March in aid of Pablos. A great fun day was had by all and £168 was raised for Pablos. Also thank you to Equiture for donating a box of saddle pads to sell to raise funds, to Jackie and Michelle for travelling a long distance to bring us lots of horse feed and horse items and this is the 3rd time that they have made a trip to the yard. And to everyone who has made a donation of feed, hay or money over the past few months as this has made a real difference to get us through the Winter months this year.
We are appealing for more horse items and tack that we would sell on to raise funds, so if you are having a clearout for Spring or for whatever reason, and you have spare or unwanted items, please could you give us a thought as these times would really be appreciated here.
Our fundraising volunteers are always out and about and will be at the following events:
May 4th Quorn Festival
Jun 28th Melton country fair
Jul 12th Bucks n Sewstern Show
