Donation made to animal rescue team

Louise Holden with PC, Jasmine Holden, Watch Manager Tom Brolan, Ryan Holden, Michelle Williamson, Lesley Williamson, Charlotte Curtis and Chloe Moreton with ShrekLouise Holden with PC, Jasmine Holden, Watch Manager Tom Brolan, Ryan Holden, Michelle Williamson, Lesley Williamson, Charlotte Curtis and Chloe Moreton with ShrekStaff and friends of White Horse Liveries in Alton Barnes have made a £100 donation to Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service’s animal rescue team, following a family fun day in September.

The gift follows two horse rescues, one at the stables in December 2010 and one in the summer involving a horse box.

Watch Manager Tom Brolan, rural safety officer with Wiltshire FRS, received the cheque from the fund-raising committee and nine-year-old Ryan Holden, who raised over £20 by selling homemade cookies and brownies. His aunt, Louise, works at White Horse Liveries.

Michelle Williamson, who manages the yard, explained: “We had a horse, PC, who fell in his stable and the fire service did a brilliant job in getting to him and getting him up on his feet.

“Then, in the summer, I was with Chloe Moreton when her horse Shrek got over the partition in his horse box and badly injured himself.

“Again, the fire service’s animal rescue team turned out and they were amazing – we honestly didn’t think Shrek would be OK, but he’s now fully recovered and competing again.”

She added: “We were already planning a fun horse and dog show to raise some money for the Wiltshire Air Ambulance, so we decided we would also make a donation to the animal rescue team as a way of saying ‘thank you’.”

White Horse Liveries is a relatively small yard, with about 25 horses, owned by Michelle Draisey, and it had fantastic support for its fundraising efforts – thanks go to sponsors including Wessex Equine Vets, Wadworths and Equilibrium.
