HAPPA are asking the public to consider the Charity during ‘Remember a Charity Week’(10th-16th September).
The national event sees Remember a Charity collaborate with charities in order to create awareness and discussion around leaving a legacy to a charity.
HAPPA are encouraging supporters to visit Shores Hey Farm and see for themselves the dedicated work the charity does improving and promoting equine welfare, and find out how leaving a legacy to HAPPA will make a difference to animal welfare.
Sarah Arthur, Chief Officer explains “Over 80% of HAPPA’s annual income comes from legacies, without this money the charity would very soon cease to exist! We try to help ourselves by actively seeking to increase our trading activities by improving our visitor’s offering, but the truth is we will always rely heavily on legacies. This special week is a chance to show our supporters that the core of our work is, and will always be, equine welfare. It doesn’t matter how old you are or what assets you have, I believe planning for the future and securing your decisions will make it easier for friends or family once you are gone.
So why not come along to our centre during this week and pick up information on leaving a gift in your will or about our HAPPA Peace of Mind Scheme; a Scheme which gives horse owners the reassurance they seek for the future welfare and care of their beloved horse, pony or donkey.
We look forward to seeing you at Shores Hey Farm, Blackhouse Lane, Briercliffe, Burnley BB10 3QU.
