Help us buy a secondhand mini digger
UPDATE: We have our new mini digger! Thank you so much to everyone who kindly donated to this major fundraiser, and to Fundación Juan Perán Pikolinos and Germany’s Epona Foundation for Horse and Environment for their support, too. See a video with our new mini digger below!
In June 2017, after years of constant repairs, our ageing mini digger finally broke down completely. This secondhand machine was kindly donated in 2009 and quickly became our centre's most important piece of equipment.
Without it, vital daily tasks such as moving large hay bales and piling up manure have become incredibly physically difficult and time-consuming.
Our co-founder Rod Weeding has even been forced to dig some of the knee-deep trenches for our secure new boundary wall by hand – a difficult job for a 68-year-old pensioner.
We desperately need a replacement mini digger.
Brand new models are hugely expensive, so we're instead aiming to buy a good-quality secondhand mini digger for about €12,000. We believe a machine like this will serve us well for the next 10 years or more.
Incredibly, Spanish shoe company Pikolinos has very kindly made a major donation to help kick-start our fundraiser (the first such grant we've ever received).
Now we need your help to raise the rest. Even a small €5 donation truly does help, as it all collectively adds up. And all donors who contribute €200 or more will be publicly recognised in a sign on our boundary wall.
Help us save the horses who need us most – donate via the secure contribution box below.
