This week Anna Kennedy OBE one of the Patrons of Kilmarnock Horse and Donkey Rescue visited their new home in Crawley.
A wonderful woman Carol Jackson founder launched the charity more than 20 years ago with the aim of caring for abandoned and mistreated horses and donkeys, as well as offering trips to children with disabilities. To date the charity have re-homed hundreds of animals.
The Mission of the charity is to provide a rescue and rehabilitation centre for Horses, Ponies, and donkeys that have been abandoned or abused in and around Sussex.
‘I have been a Patron of this wonderful charity for over 7 years and have visited many times .
On my visit this week the Chairperson of Autism Support Crawley Maria Louise Cook and her lovely son Ryan also visited the Rescue. I introduced Maria and her wonderful charity to Carol a few years ago and since then many families of Autistic children and adults from Maria’s charity have e experienced special moments with horses and donkeys and even visits from Santa with a gift!
Maria is visiting with families once again this Saturday for a picnic.
I am also proud to be a Patron of Autism Support Crawley for a number of years and when these two charities come together they are such special and fun times’
