Helping animals

I support animal welfare charity The Brooke and run the Topsham supporter group.

Since February, The Brooke has fed and treated horses and donkeys affected by the collapse of tourism in Egypt.

In total, around 90,000 kg of feed has been distributed and more than 16,000 veterinary treatments have been carried out in Cairo, Edfu, Aswan and Luxor.

In the past year, we have raised more than �1,200 for the charity through coffee mornings, stalls and collections held in Topsham and we have been greatly supported by our very generous community.

I wanted to let your readers know this fantastic charity, which I have supported for 15 years, has set up an innovative way to celebrate special occasions or pay tribute to the people and animals you care about.

By setting up a personalised online donation page, in memory of a loved one or cherished pet, you can invite your friends and family to get involved.

Every penny raised will make a lasting difference to hard-working horses and donkeys overseas.
