COVID 19

Our primary focus this year is to raise sufficient funds to enable us to continue operating safely subject to the Covid 19 restrictions. The Centre had to suspend activities for over six months in 2020, retaining a small team of staff to care for our horses and ponies and to remotely support our learners on their City and Guilds course and our Supported Volunteers. This has resulted in a serious depletion of our income; we need to raise at least £8000 a month to pay for staff, for horse care and for utility bills.  You are very welcome to fundraise on our behalf by arranging sponsored events and by making donations through our fundraising page: www.virginmoneygiving.com/fund/winterwarmers Thank you.

We are seeking also funding for the following items:

DONATIONS FOR SANITISING EQUIPMENT - A new item on our shopping list this year!

VOLUNTEER CO-ORDINATOR SALARY of about £15,500 pa - volunteers, including those on our Supported Volunteer Placement Programme are vital to the Centre.

HORSES - Some of our horses are now nearing retirement age and we will have to replace them. The cost can range from £3000 upwards.

HORSE SPONSORSHIP for the keep of our 20 horses @ £2000 each per annum, including horse shoes x £48 per pair

HORSE RUGS - approximately £1000.

SPECIALIST RIDER EQUIPMENT  This includes saddles, sheepskin rugs, reins, dapps stirrups, rainbow reins, ladder reins. Many of our riders have individual needs and these items can be extremely costly to purchase.

RIDING HATS - £3000. In order to ensure safety, all our hats are replaced every 3 years.

PHYSIO SUPPORT @ £100 per hour.  For assessment of riders on the waiting list and assistance for riders with particular disabilities.

RESTONING OF WINTER TURN-OUT AREA and RESURFACING OUR CORRALS. Urgent requirement. To enable horses to be turned out during the wetter months and protect our pastures.

STABLE YARD EQUIPMENT - Grooming equipment, brooms, shovels, barrows, etc. More is continually needed to follow Covid restrictions. Approximately £1000.

RUBBER MATTING FOR STABLES approximately £3000 to reduce our bedding costs. 

ENTRANCE HALL AND GALLERY.  We would like to make both these areas more welcoming, comfortable and warm.  A big project requiring some serious funding!

SOLAR PANELS. Again a major project.  Installing these on the main building roof would reduce our energy costs.

AND of course, core funding to help us on a day-to-day basis with salaries and bills etc

Your help, big or small, would be much appreciated by everyone at the Unicorn Centre.
