Throughout Brook Foods’ Silver Anniversary year, the company has been choosing charities to support on a monthly basis – donating £25 for every customer order valued at £1,000 and more. Last month saw the Williton-based company’s donations so far soar to over £5,000.
Raising £1,250 throughout April, Samia Sanders of Brook Foods was delighted to present a cheque to The Exmoor Pony Centre – a small charity-run business, owned by the Moorland Mousie Trust, which works to both promote and protect the endangered rare breed Exmoor pony. Their main work focuses on providing a future for the excess foals that are removed from the moor each year during the annual gathering.
Presenting the cheque to Kirsty Urion from the Centre in early May, Samia had the chance to meet Almond (pictured) and Tom, who are regular visitors to local schools and care homes. She said, “Exmoor ponies provide locals and visitors to the area with a unique sight and experience; these beautiful animals graciously welcome us onto their moorland home. We haven’t donated to an animal charity yet but felt it was important to recognise the work the Exmoor Pony Centre carries out.”
Kirsty said, “Thank you so much, this is a really unexpected and wonderful amount and will go a long way to help us here at the centre with feeds and fencing and looking after the ponies.”
