A cheque donation of £1350 will go towards essential veterinary treatment, rehabilitation and care at Redwings horse sanctuary.

The Oddfellows’ Heart of Norfolk district friendship group, based in Dereham, raised the money through fundraising activities at events, as well as individual contributions from the group’s members.

Chairman Rosemary Fraser said: “I visited Redwings in Aylsham with my granddaughter and absolutely fell in love with the place. Hearing the horses’ heart-breaking stories and seeing them so happy in their new home absolutely blew me away.”

The charity provides daily care for over 1,500 abandoned, mistreated and neglected horses, ponies, donkeys and mules across its five sites.

Debbie Scott, fundraising manager at Redwings, said: “The donation will go towards essential veterinary treatment, rehabilitation and lifelong care for our four-legged residents.”
