Bransby Horses Say Thanks with Heartwarming Festive Video

Equestrian News :: Everything Horse

Lincolnshire equine charity, Bransby Horses, has released a very special and unique thank you message to their staff and supporters this Christmas. The 5-minute emotive mini-film (above) takes inspiration from the famous Bagpuss opening credits and the heart-warming John Lewis style adverts, and has been created entirely by staff and their family.

The charity has received amazing support in the aftermath of flooding in November, which has taken away use of 40% of their land, for up to 18 months. Support has been coming in by way of donations of money, items and time, which has given the charity a much-needed leg up at this difficult time. The yard teams and support teams at the charity wanted to show their appreciation ahead of Christmas and convey just how much the support means to them and the equines they care for.

The story has been written by Marketing Manager, Alex Kinnear-Mellor, narrated by her father Richard Kinnear, and filmed and edited by Graphic Design Assistant Joe Wass. The story features Lauren May, Equine Welfare Assistant as ‘Emily’ and Sophie, one of the charity’s equine Adoption Stars.

Alex Kinnear-Mellor, Marketing Manager said:

We wanted to create a film that had our staff’s amazing work ethic at its heart. This is never more evident than at this festive time of year when they come into work on Christmas Day, always putting our donkeys, horses, ponies and mules before themselves.

We also wanted to celebrate our supporters who are equally as incredible, spending their Christmas gift-buying budgets, donating pre-loved items and buying objects from our Amazon Wishlist, as well as volunteering.

Every day we’re blown away by the sheer volume of kind souls around us who help keep our charity going. We hope everyone likes our film, made on a very modest budget but with bucket loads of heart!”

Bransby Horses’ challenges are by no means over but with the help of kind-hearted people, they are already 15% towards raising their the additional £200,000 needed to move to and home some of their horses and ponies at their site at Barlings soon.

As well as financial donations, the charity has been receiving offers of help from individuals who can spare a few hours to volunteer, like-minded charities, and big-hearted organisations from the area and further afield.

People have also been making donations of money and items from the Amazon Wishlist and visiting the site to show their support. Can you help this lovely local charity which is doing amazing work to give horses, ponies, donkeys and mules a second chance at life? Visit their website for details:
