Hugs Foal Fundraiser – 3 Foals Born, 1 More Due!

Hugs Foal Fundraiser – 3 Foals Born, 1 More Due!

Last year we rescued several abandoned ponies. 4 were pregnant. 3 have now had their beautiful foals during the coronavirus outbreak, one of which is the lovely Tia’s, who has been incredibly poorly through her pregnancy, so we have everything crossed that her and her baby stay healthy. One more to go!

Each foal costs approximately £880 in it’s first 6 months. That’s £3520 for all 4 and that’s without the responsibility of castration or complications.

Please support these foals so they can have the best start in life and the best chance of being ready in the future to find their loving forever homes. The Hugs Foundation will give them an amazing beginning to their life, one that was destined to have been very different, had they not been rescued. We think you can all agree that they are absolutely gorgeous and following their story will be amazing and help keep peoples spirits up in the current circumstances.

The 2.6 Challenge 26th April 2020 – Get Involved & Help Raise Funds for Hugs!

 

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a devastating effect on charities, with the cancellation of thousands of events and the loss of billions in fundraising income. In response, the UK is pulling together to raise vital funds to help to save the UK’s charities.

The 2.6 Challenge will launch on Sunday 26 April – what should have been the date of the 40th London Marathon. We’re asking you to take part in an activity of your choice based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and fundraise or donate to support The Hugs Foundation.

The challenge is for all ages and abilities, with a host of activities – from walking, running or cycling 2.6 miles, juggling for 2.6 minutes, flipping 26 pancakes, to holding online workouts with 26 friends. The ideas and options are endless!

The only requirement is that you must follow Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing. Most people are taking part from Sunday 26 April but you can do your activity whenever is most convenient for you.

There are just five simple steps to take:

  1. Dream up your 2.6 challenge – if you need help there are lots of ideas here https://www.twopointsixchallenge.co.uk/inspiration.html
  2. Donate here https://bit.ly/2ROFzrt
  3. Ask all your friends and family to sponsor you and challenge them to do their own 2.6 Challenge
  4. Complete your challenge
  5. Share a photo or video of your challenge on social media with #TwoPointSixChallenge

We look forward to seeing your challenges!

Hugs Emergency Rescue!

Hugs Emergency Rescue!

Absolutely massive thank you to Network for Animals and all their supporters for raising funds to enable us to rescue 4 abandoned ponies. Your work is imperative and the difference you make to animals lives is incredible. Huge thank you also, to SAFE (Saving Abandoned Fly-Grazing Equines) who made it all possible with all their hard work ensuring they got to us safely. We are very happy to announce these ponies are now at Hugs and receiving the care, kindness and love they so badly needed.

There were originally 5 ponies but one was so badly injured it had to sadly be put to sleep. Many charities are full and because of the crisis impacting everyone’s funding, there was nowhere for these ponies to go and they were destined to be put to sleep.

Amazingly, because of people like you, these ponies have been given a second chance and are now on their journey to recovery, rehabilitating at Hugs.Thank you for your kind donations in such hard times 💚

If anyone would like to help with their ongoing care costs and our other rescue ponies/animals during theses difficult times, please click on the link below. You are changing lives, thank you from all at Hugs.
