We are seeking also funding for the following items:

SURFACE ARENA. The indoor arena needs to be replaced this year, at a cost of at least £16,000. We're delighted and very grateful that funding commitments from Middlesbrough Council's Community Grant Fund and the Teesside Charity have enabled us to get closer to our target. It's vital that this is kept in tip-top condition for our participants, so please could you help us by donating at: https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/buyabucket  Thank you.

MUCK HEAP CONCRETING: We are planning to provide a concrete hardstanding and drainage for our mickheap.  Contributions welcome!

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

HORSES - We plan to build up our horse team to enable us to offer more lessons and also some 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

YARD EQUIPMENT WISH LIST.  We have a wish list on Amazon where you can buy items we need.  Head over to https://amzn.eu/axq9EZc and  choose something for us.  Thank you!

BUILDING MAINTENANCE.  This is ongoing - a bit like the Forth Road Bridge! We hope to paint the outside woodwork and doors this year - unless you know of a work team who would do it for us?

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.

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.

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.
