The aims of the Trust are
- to prevent cruelty to equine animals, to relieve suffering and distress amongst such equine animals, to care for and protect such equine animals including live horses being transported country to country for butchery if such animals are in need of care and protection by reason of sickness, maltreatment, poor circumstances or similar causes
- To provide social services for help for the relief of the aged and infirm.
The Trust gives approximately 2/3rds to equine charities and 1/3rd to elderly charities.
Their usual restrictions have been temporarily relaxed due to the unprecedented situation resulting from Covid-19, and the Trustees are prepared to consider applications supporting ongoing charity costs.
Charities are expected to clearly demonstrate the need for any funding towards running costs such as feed or salaries
Charities should demonstrate what they have done to mitigate the impact of Covid-19 on their income and expenditure
