Horse Sense Wirral fundraising open day this weekend
Horse protection charity WIRRAL will open its doors to the public this weekend, giving supporters the chance to get to know their four-legged neighbors to raise vital funds.
Horse Sense Wirral is hosting its second Visitors Day this Sunday from 12pm to 2pm.
A first event in June, the first since the pandemic, raised over £600.
After a flurry of new arrivals to the sanctuary, members of the public can meet some of the horses and ponies, including four young colts, one of whom is named Cliff.
He was found injured earlier this year after falling over the edge of a cliff in the Carneddau mountain range.
The four foals were brought in as orphans this summer and receive milk around the clock every two hours at the sanctuary, and are doing very well.

Amy Pirie, Founder of Horse Sense Wirral, said: “Following the success of our last day of visitation, we are delighted to welcome the local community to our sanctuary this Sunday from 12pm-2pm.
“A rare chance to go behind the scenes and meet the ponies including our lovely colts. Clifford the colt has personally agreed to work on a Sunday and meet our guests, he calls it ‘Cliff Fest 2022’.
“Cakes, books and plants will be on sale, along with Alison’s crafts and candles.”
“For entry, we’re just asking for a donation of your choice. We’d love to see you all there!”
Visitors can simply turn up the same day at Horse Sense Wirral at Lodge Farm on Neston Road in Thornton Hough, Wirral CH63 1JE.
