Remus Horse Sanctuary joins #GivingTuesday 2019, the global day of generosity on 3rd December.

Remus provides rescue and rehabilitation to abandoned horses, ponies and donkeys that are victims of physical and mental abuse. Work at the Sanctuary is often similar to a hospice situation, giving these animals, most of which are survivors of horrendous cruelty, the best of care, allowing the younger ones to develop into happy adults, and the older ones to rest and recuperate.
#GivingTuesday was the top trending item on UK Twitter last year, with the hashtag reaching people over 600 million times. In the UK, more than £7.8 million was raised in online donations on the day itself.
Sue Burton, Founder of Remus Horse Sanctuary says: "The aim of #givingtuesday is to get people thinking about others this Christmas and doing little things that can make a big difference. It could be donating money or volunteering but, if we all do something small, it would make a real difference to the hundreds of abandoned horses in this area and Remus too.
"We're asking people to use the hashtag #givingtuesdaypledgeRemus to help promote our cause."
Gráinne Mathews, Giving Tuesday UK Campaign Lead, adds: "Giving Tuesday is a chance for us all to help out a cause close to our hearts. This year we're encouraging everyone to make a #GivingTuesdayPledge and think of ways to have an impact year-round, in addition to on the day itself.
That could mean giving a small monthly donation to a charity, or setting aside a couple of hours each month for volunteering. Together, all of these pledges will combine to make a world of difference to so many lives."
Ms Burton concluded: "We're asking people to donate just £5 a month to Remus – that's equivalent to the cost of just two cups of coffee, but it would make a huge difference to us and allow us to rescue more abandoned horses."
