Manning Stainton has supported the Autumn Fayre and Tack Sale at Hope Pastures as part of its Community Support Programme.
Visitors to the site on Weetwood Lane enjoyed a wide range of attractions including pony grooming, a bumper raffle, various stalls and a selection of tasty refreshments. There was also a hugely popular sale of tack, kindly donated by the many friends of the sanctuary.
It is the second time in recent months that the local branch Manning Stainton has helped the equine sanctuary, having previously sponsored two classes at the annual fundraising dog show.
Hope Pastures, near Adel, has been rescuing and re-homing equines since 1974 and relies almost entirely on donations and money raised from these popular events.
Jax Thompson, Assistant Yard Manager and Volunteer Coordinator, said, ‘We are entirely self-funded and events like the Autumn Fayre and dog show allow us to continue our important work, preventing suffering and improving the lives of the animals in our care.
“We are extremely grateful to Manning Stainton for their continued support and all the people who came along in such large numbers and spent so generously.”
