Sainsbury's Colouring Competition

Earlier in the year the Northcote Heavy Horse Centre was picked to be the charity of the year at our local Sainsbury's store in Spilsby, Lincolnshire. Local customers were able to vote for our charity in store and we won! We are over the moon to be selected and as always we're humbled to have continued local support. We look forward to our future charity partnership with Sainsbury's. 

The store held a colouring competition (with over 200 entries!) with an adoption pack as the first place prize. We have great pleasure in sharing the winners that were selected by the store manager. Please enjoy the well deserved winning pictures below!

Local support is vital to the survival of our sanctuary and care of the horses and animals here. The summer is drawing to an end and we're about to enter the very costly part of the year where we have to try to find funds to buy hay, straw and other vital parts to the horses and animals health and welfare.

Award Win for Horse Charity Manager

A few weeks ago we were informed of a award nomination for Terena, the Centre manager here at the Northcote Heavy Horse Centre. We were all delighted just for the nomination but the a few days ago we received a message congratulating Terena on winning an 'Everyday Hero' award. 

The award comes from Pork Farms and they travelled a great distance in a vintage VW Camper to arrange a surprise 'popup party' for Terena and around 30 guests. We all had a lovely evening with some great food, music and company! We would like to thank Pork Farms for their kind generosity. It means so much to all of us and certainly Terena!

Terena runs the Northcote Heavy Horse Centre unpaid with so much love, dedication and devotion. There are many days when voluntary help is low and Terena often has to manage the entire centre on her own! So please take a moment to congratulate and thank Terena on an award that is so deserved.

The Sad Loss of Charity

It is with much sadness that we say goodbye to Charity, a wonderful Shetland pony who was never any trouble to look after, she was best friend to Moose our Belgian Draft and will be missed by her as well as all of us who help to look after the horses and ponies in our care. Charity had been on and off poorly for a couple of weeks, but came worse yesterday afternoon just as the vet arrived... sadly medication had no affect and charity passed away in the night. Thank you all for your best wishes, and I am sure you will send her your thoughts as she passes over the rainbow bridge to find new adventures. R.I.P. Charity love always. xxx
