£2,000 Donation

This is how some of your money is spent...

  • A slap up meal - Getting the feed regime right for thoroughbreds is essential for their health and condition, especially for those who arrive poor or emaciated. Your gift provides a balanced meal with essential supplements.
  • A winter wardrobe - Thoroughbreds are renowned for feeling the cold and will lose condition at the drop of a thermometer. Thick rugs appropriate to wintry weather conditions keep Greatwood horses warm all winter. Your gift helps to buy a rug or contributes to repairs and reproofing.
  • Sumptuous bed - Thoroughbreds feel the cold more than most. A deep straw bed with burgeoning banks keeps a Greatwood horse comfortable and content. Your gift keeps help to keep a Greatwood horse warm for 5 days.

Thank you for your support.

At Greatwood we recognise that losing a loved one is a difficult time for everybody. Sadly our loved ones do die. Perhaps at this time you might consider asking for donations to Greatwood in their memory in lieu of flowers?

Perhaps you are celebrating a special birthday or anniversary? Why not ask friends and family to make a donation to Greatwood instead of buying a gift?

If you would like to do this then please contact us or ring us on 01672 514535

Every purchase here helps us look after our former racehorses to educate disadvantaged children and young adults with special educational needs (SEN). Thank you for your continued support.
