We’re very aware that there are a lot of worthy charities asking for help from their supporters at the moment. The truth being, as most will know, that the pandemic that has drawn our country to a halt has affected many thousands of businesses and charities.
Unfortunately, Bransby Horses is no different. Our teams have estimated that our charity will have lost £350,000 since the lockdown and up until the end of June 2020.
If the disruption lasts longer, clearly we will be further affected.
As so many charities are understandably asking for support, we want to ensure we are being sensitive when we ask for help at this challenging time. So we have come up with an idea which we hope won’t be too financially demanding on our supporters whilst helping Bransby Horses Keep On Keeping On.
As we’ve worked out this financial loss figure based on the revenue we would have made should people have visited our site, which has been locked down, we are asking people to Virtually Visit us.
And what does Virtually Visit us mean?
Bransby Horses is asking it’s amazing supporters who would have visited us over these months, but clearly can’t, to donate the money they would have spent on their visit to us.
Our end of the deal is to bring to you an everyday experience of what is currently happening at our site. We will share with you, wonderful bonding projects and areas of the Bransby site that you may not normally get to see. All these films, filmed by our amazing teams still safely working at our sites, will be posted on our website and our social media channels.
So, if you would have visited us, and you would like to support us. We ask that you donate your unused petrol money; the cost of the coffee and sandwich you may have purchased in our café or if you would normally donate when you visit, now more than ever that support means so much.
Please donate this money at our JustGiving page, let us know what you’ve bought on your virtual visit if you want, and we will continue to share our site and it’s incredible two-legged teams and four-legged residents with you every day.
