HAO Raising Money for Horses in Egypt - Sponsored Walk 2010
Members of the Healing Animals Organisation held a sponsored walk across the south downs on September 12th to raise money for Animal Care in Egypt (ACE)
ACE is a charity in Luxor that provides free emergency care for working horses and donkeys, as well as dogs, cats and farm animals. The working animals are invaluable for the livelihood of their owners, and so treatment, prevention and education the centre provides really does make a difference. Maddie Darnton and Ilona Bayliss will be volunteering with ACE in Luxor for one month in October.
Maddie reached over her target of £1,400 by those who sponsored her through the ACE justgiving page
Thank you for your support!!
Maddie and Ilona
are going to make themselves useful by saving some donkeys and horses at the ACE centre (animal care in Egypt) in Luxor in September. They provide free emergency care for working donkeys and horses, as well as dogs, cats and farm animals. Maddie (the next Monty Roberts) is staying for a month and Ilona (a brand spanking new vet) is going for two and a half.
It's all run by donations so help us raise money! They now have a functioning animal hospital, but they desperately need an isolation facility.
Soooooo..... What have we got planned?
What? An organised walk/ride extravaganza
Where? Starting in Brighton, along part of the South Downs
When? Sunday the 12th September, starting in the morning.
Who? All creatures great and small - horses (limited to 6 places - let Maddie know asap if you would like to bring your horse!) dogs, siblings, great aunts all welcome (although maybe it's best to leave your pet Tiger at home as it might scare the horses...)
If you can't make it, or are feeling particularly lazy, please sponsor us anyway. Any amount is greatly appreciated.
