HAPPA’s newest signing


June 17, 2016



HAPPA (Horses and Ponies Protection Association) is proud to welcome their newest signing, a beautiful coloured foal named by Burnley Football Club supporters as Dychio.
The young Dychio entered the world amidst celebrations surrounding the Club’s promotion to the Premier League and HAPPA took the opportunity to continue their association with the team at Turf Moor by asking Clarets supporters to choose a suitable name for him.
It seems they had Burnley’s Gaffer Sean Dyche firmly in mind when they made their choice and Dychio has already achieved Premier status by making it into HAPPA’s Second Chance Sponsorship squad.
The Second Chance Sponsorship Scheme was developed to help promote rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of horses and ponies at HAPPA. Sponsors make a bespoke rehabilitation process possible for each animal on the scheme by offering their support and in return they are encouraged to take an active interest in their chosen pony’s progress by visiting the Centre, receiving regular updates and receiving a special rosette when the animal starts a new life in their Foster or Forever Home.
Burnley Football Club is already a Second Chance Sponsor and you can sponsor HAPPA Dychio today for the special celebration rate of just £30 (on production of your Burnley FC season ticket or Burnley FC Supporter number) and become part of a winning team. This offer end 31st July 2016
Equine Development Officer Laura Brown is excited by the new addition to her team, “Dychio is super cute and we will be looking for a suitable foster placement for him when he is a little older. The Second Chance Sponsorship Scheme is a great opportunity for people to be involved in equine welfare in a really positive way and I hope that all Burnley supporters will take advantage of this great offer and support HAPPA’s newest signing. You will receive a welcome pack with a jute bag including information about your sponsored pony, a framed photo, a letter from your pony and a cuddly pony when you join.”
To join the scheme please call Laura on 01282 455992, email [email protected]<mailto:[email protected]uk> or visit Shores Hey Farm, Briercliffe, BB10 3QU between 11am -4pm daily.
