Welcome to our Annual Review for 2015
What a year 2015 was for us here at Redwings.
There were some major highs, such as the finalising of our merger with a sanctuary in Scotland, and some incredible rescue cases including our work to help the horses and ponies of Bodmin Moor; but there were also lows, including the sad loss of some new arrivals, and a major outbreak of strangles at the Sanctuary which had a huge impact on our operations.
I am particularly proud of the merger with our Scottish neighbours at Mountains Animal Sanctuary. It was an incredible amount of work over more than two years, but so rewarding as this was the first of its kind under new charity law and was secured in order to see the best outcome for the Mountains resident horses, ponies and donkeys, not forgetting Blue the mule!
Thank you again for all your kind support and I hope you enjoy reading our Annual Review for 2015.
A meeting of the minds!
On 27th January 2015 at 1am, following over 30 months’ work, Redwings Horse Sanctuary merged with Mountains Animal Sanctuary in Scotland.
The sanctuary based in Forfar shares our passion for the care and protection of the UK’s horse and donkey population, as well as a similar heritage, having – like Redwings – celebrated their 30th anniversary in 2014, so this merger really is a meeting of two minds. The merger is also the first of its kind under new charity legislation governing mergers between English and Scottish charities so it’s an exciting milestone in both of our histories.
