The Trust was delighted to support FRED’s work with an award to ensure the donkey’s physical and medical needs were fully met by experienced vets, farrier, equine dental care and first class nutrition.

FRED Trustee, Martin McGroarty said

The award has allowed us to continue to provide a high standard of care and attention to all our donkeys’ farriery, dental, dietary and healthy feeding requirements.   Knowing that we had the financial support of The Weir Charitable Trust in the middle of a global pandemic has been very reassuring”.
