Weʼve raised £649 to Cover some of Willows vet bills after being struck by a car after being spooked by fireworks...

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.
Rachels best friend Willow was in her field on the 29th of October when without warning a firework was let off near her field and landed in the field. This scared her beyond belief and she bolted over multiple fences in the paddock.
After getting away she found herself scared on the road and was unfortunately struck by a car. Fortunately the driver is thankfully okay! Willow sustained major injuries to her legs and back which are currently being treated by the amazing team at Oakham Veterinary Hospital. She is hopefully going to make a full recovery with their help. Unfortunately this will mean Rachel incurs massive costs to make sure Willow is fighting fit in the future. The recovery will be many long months!
Please see below for the injuries incurred (warning graphic)
While Willow will get the best care possible, I've set up this page to help take the strain off Rachel after this stressful time.
If you cannot donate, don't worry. Please share and spread the message that Rachel is very strongly pushing and sign the petition below.
The petition Rachel believes in is to stop anybody getting fireworks to make it safe for animals.
Sorry Rachel, I know you didn't want to quite go down this route but I think it's unfair that you always take the grunt of the costs from other peoples mishaps!
Thanks guys and gals!

Rachel and I went to see Willow today! She's much more in herself than she was last week. Her leg is swollen and she's a bit sore! The wound is breaking down due to lack of blood supply, this was expected! Long road ahead.

When I heard about poor Willow I felt so sorry for her and sickened at what caused her accident. I hope she makes a speedy recovery. Donation is from my family xxx

I was horrified when I heard about this and signed the petition to get Fireworks banned. I pray Willow makes a full recovery! Take care

I hope Willow recovers and Rachel can enjoy riding again. The ones who let the fireworks off that horrible night have no self respect for anybody or livestock.Wishing you all the very best x
