Rescuing and re-homing equines since 1974

The Big 30 Challenge

This six month challenge has now finished and you will be pleased to know that you have raised £12,000.
We would like to give a huge thank you to all those that have taken part or donated to this challenge.


Since the onset of COVID-19, Hope Pastures has suffered financially due to the cancellation of essential fundraising events. With so many mouths to feed, hooves to trim, teeth to have rasped, wormers to be given, bedding, hay and feed to buy, to name only a few aspects of care, we are now really starting to worry about the long term impact that our small charity may be facing.
To help raise money for our beloved four-legged residents we launched a brand new challenge.
#HopePasturesBig30 Challenge was inclusive of everyone and we
were asking you to raise £30 – that is £1 for every horse that Hope Pastures can keep on-site. Your challenge can be active (riding, running, cycling, skipping, football, etc…) or can be less energetic (tack cleaning, baking, knitting, singing, etc…). The choice is yours and we’re really looking forward to seeing the weird and wonderful ideas that you come up with!
Because we are a small charity, we have very few overheads, which means that more of your donation goes directly to helping the animals. With your support, we can continue to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome animals and give them the life that they have always dreamed of.
Closing date for the challenge was 28th February 2021
