Horse Rescue Centre to close

Sussex Horse Rescue

The Sussex Horse Rescue Centre in Uckfield is to close.

The official announcement was made today.

Statement from Sussex Horse Rescue Trust Board of Trustees

It is with great sadness that we announce that the Trustees of Sussex Horse Rescue Trust have taken the very difficult decision to close the charity in the
ongoing best interests of the horses and donkeys in our care.

This has been a much-considered decision which has been taken with support
from the Charity Commission.

We are now in the lengthy and careful process of re-homing the horse and
donkeys.

There is a plan in place for this and we will update our supporters once this has been finalised.

The welfare of the horses and donkeys is our priority and the Trustees are fortunate to have the support of Redwings and other equine welfare charities through this difficult time.

We will be in contact with all of our supporters, volunteers, and loan homes personally in due course.

The Trustees would particularly like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff, volunteers, supporters and loan homes past and present for their loyalty, commitment and valuable contributions to the charity over the years’
