THE Horse Refuge in Wit­ter­sham re­mains open this week de­spite the threat of evic­tion last Fri­day.

Do­na­tions have reached about £300,000 but the same amount again is needed to buy the land and save the 53 ne­glected and abused horses that live at the Do­bell Farm site.

Owner Sara Ross re­mains hope­ful that the refuge can still be saved.

She said: “I’ve been keep­ing ev­ery­thing crossed that we can raise the money. I’m de­ter­mined to find a so­lu­tion.”

Do­na­tions can be made by call­ing Sara on 01797 270555 or at www.the­
