PPCT funds improvements to the stables

The rescue equines at HAPPA (Horses and Ponies Protection Association) are now enjoying upgraded accommodation thanks to a grant from Petplan Charitable Trust.

We were delighted to support HAPPA with the improvements to the roof of three stables and attached supporting buildings at Shores Hey Farm.

The stables, which are part of the original farm buildings, have been home to many rescued horses and ponies since the charity moved to Shores Hey Farm in 1984. Having stood the test of time for many years it became inevitable that repairs would eventually mean replacement.

The £10,660 grant has allowed the charity to make improvements to the roof and to level the stable floors and purchase rubber matting.

HAPPA contracted Padiham Roofing Ltd to complete the project.

“They worked extremely hard to complete the project in just one week in June 2022,” says Julie Pharoah-Gan, HAPPA’s Head of Marketing and Fundraising.

“We cannot thank Petplan Charitable Trust enough in helping HAPPA to make it happen. This was a big project and without the support from the Trust it would have taken a long time to raise the funds to make this happen.”
