African ad­ven­tures, re­cy­cling PVC – it’s all here for you

Red­wings, the Nor­folk­based horse and don­key res­cue char­ity, has launched Un­told Sto­ries, an ap­peal high­light­ing the hun­dreds of horses in its care whose tales it can­not tell due to on­go­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tions, se­cu­rity con­cerns or other sen­si­tiv­i­ties.

For in­stance Red­wings re­cently sup­ported the RSPCA with a ma­jor op­er­a­tion in Sur­rey, which saw 123 horses re­moved from one farm. Red­wings has taken in a num­ber of these horses, but can­not re­veal any de­tails of their lo­ca­tion, con­di­tion or care while in­ves­ti­ga­tions con­tinue.

Lynn Cutress, Red­wings’ chief ex­ec­u­tive, said: “It’s in­cred­i­bly im­por­tant to us that jus­tice is served for our res­cued horses, but this some­times means we can­not lift the lid on their sto­ries un­til court pro­ceed­ings have been com­pleted, which we know can be frus­trat­ing.

“But be­hind ev­ery un­told story, you can rest as­sured there is a team hard at work giv­ing each horse a fight­ing chance at sur­vival.”
