    Weʼve raised £21,607 to Help those who lost their beloved Horses in the Elmwood Equestrian Centre fire last night.

    Funded on Wednesday, 31st January 2018

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    From one group of horse lovers to another we are determined to raise money for Elmwood Equestrian Centre, in Burnham-on-crouch as sadly, last night (sunday 3rd December), a fire started and spread at the livery yard. From what we know now, 12 horses have died, many will be traumatised, and most have lost everything. When the firefighters arrived, the building was already engulfed in flames, and the roof had begun to collapse inwards. They tried their best to save and release as many horses as they could. Honestly speaking to the people involved this morning is heartbreaking, watching the barn collapse knowing your beloved horses are in there, is unimaginable.

    Therefore, we have set up this just giving page, to raise as much money as possible for the yard, in order to replace what has been lost, help towards shelters for the horses, and even vets bills.

    Rest in Peace Archie, Willow, Diamond, Gizmo, Rex, Priya, Rio, Minnie, Zinny, Murphy, Poppy and Alesha x

      As of 7.15 am we have now raised £10432 which is more than I ever expected! This just goes to show, although there are some heartless people in the world, there are far more people wanting to help Elmwood get back on their feet! Thankyou so much everyone x

      Honestly overwhelmed by the amount of support coming from everyone! On behalf of Elmwood I would like to say a massive thankyou. To reach our initial aim of £1000 in two hours was incredible, to now be at £4000 within a day shows how willing to help everyone is! Once again a massive thankyou, and I cannot wait to tell the owners how much you have all contributed!

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
