Foal Farm, the charitable animal rescue centre at Biggin Hill, has benefited from a donation of £1257 this week raised by supportive staff at Biggin Hill Airport.

Debra Taylor, Manager at Foal Farm, was joined by Siobhan Curtis, wife of airport MD Will Curtis and their dog Gladstone and by Colin Hitchins, Community Engagement Manager with his dog Bonny, for the presentation of the cheque.

In offering her thanks to the airport staff for their generosity, she said that it was wonderful that they had chosen Foal Farm as one of their charities.

“The amount of regular income generated by Foal Farm supporters enables us to help all the animals that come through our gates.  Your kind support has been a part of helping this to happen” said Debra.

“With our menage of horses, donkeys, cows, pigs, sheep, goats, chickens, ducks and geese, we have a big cost commitment to cover.  While all of these will now spend the rest of their natural lives at the farm, our rescued dogs, cats, rabbits and other small animals are returned to good health and then placed in secure and loving vetted homes” Debra explains.

Foal Farm has been committed to caring for all rescued animals for over 50 years.  Their aim for the next 50 years and beyond is to accept as many sick animals as may need this kind of  help and restore them to health and happiness.
