Could Your Business Support Hugs? 

Why could supporting our charity help your business?

• Business image and reputation – it engages internal stakeholders in your values and as well as communicating to your customers that you are a socially-responsible organisation.

• Networking, improved PR and marketing opportunities – by sharing the stories of good work that you do with your charities, you can increase your PR with newsworthy content that engages both existing customers and prospects. It also gives exposure to different sectors.

• Boost office morale and encourage teambuilding – many employees are keen to get involved in charities but find that their lives are too busy to volunteer. So by taking part in a work-sponsored scheme, they can feel as though they are doing good and participating in meaningful work that gives back without needing to take time away from their hectic home lives and family schedules. Corporate fundraising events can also be great morale boosters, and teambuilding events on charitable projects help to motivate and increase staff well-being – without any need to attend costly away days at training centres.

• Defines corporate identity – the charitable element of your company can be a cornerstone of its brand showing the world that you are ethical and trustworthy.

• Enhanced employee relations and employee retention – employees are proud to work for a company that supports philanthropic programs, which can lead to increased loyalty and better retention.

• Donating goods or financial support to a charity is tax deductible.

Sponsor an Animal


Sponsoring an animal is a very rewarding experience. Knowing that you are directly contributing to that animals safety and welfare is a fantastic feeling.

Stronger Connection

At The Hugs Foundation we are passionate about our relationships and connections with our supporters. Sponsoring an animal brings you closer to the cause and closer to The Hugs Foundation.

Your Sponsorship Goes Further

The animal that you sponsor helps us deliver another of our main aims. To offer therapeutic interventions using some of the rescued horses, ponies and other animals to children, young people and to those suffering from poor mental health. So the power of your sponsorship goes further.


Leave a Legacy


Leaving a legacy means your memory can continue to make a difference to the lives of horses, children and the local community, who benefit from Hugs. Plus our partnership with McClure Solicitors, means you can have your Will written or reviewed for FREE! All they ask, “Just consider a donation for The Hugs Foundation.”

The Difference Your Gift Makes

At Hugs we witness, first hand, the problems both animals and humans face. We are privileged to have our amazing facility, animals and expert staff here to help and support people in need. Your gift will enable us to carry on with the work we do below.

We rescue, rehabilitate and rehome unwanted and neglected horses and ponies and are home to a lot of other farm and domestic animals too. Here at Hugs, we have designed a unique rehabilitation programme (for those that are suitable) that gives them a purpose and ongoing rehabilitation and training. The programme allows some of our ponies to visit care homes, schools and events to give back to the community and educate in animal welfare, care and mental health. The experiences they give people are invaluable, our animals bring a sense of calm, something to look forward to that’s different from normal routine, and increased feelings of happiness and sociability.

We also provide a therapeutic and supportive intervention to children and young people suffering mental ill health. Our facilities and rescue animals allow us to create a unique intervention using a diverse range of therapeutic activities in a natural environment. Benefits include; increased sociability, improved self-esteem, positive re-integration back into school, re-engagement and building family relationships and decreased negative behaviours and suicidal thoughts.
