Winner Announced!

Regular readers may recall that within our recent December/January edition we published a heart-warming story about Absolute Horse Magazine reader, Clair Missen from Suffolk, who decided to donate a bedding prize that she’d won through the magazine to the Remus Horse Sanctuary. The prize was 25-bales of Phillips Brothers Woodshavings.

We were all so touched by not only Clair’s initial gesture, but also the feedback that this kind act generated through Facebook, that we decided to do it again! Said Jane Knapp, Director at Suffolk-based Phillips Brothers, “Seeing the far-reaching positive effect that Clair Missen’s generosity had, we decided we wanted to work with the Absolute Horse Magazine to run a similar competition where readers could nominate an East-Anglian based equine charity that they feel deserves to have 25-bales of our bedding delivered straight to them, as recognition for all the hard work that they do, day after day.”

So via social media we asked readers to nominate a charity. The response was amazing and within just a few short hours there had been hundreds of nominations and nearly 100-shares of the Facebook post.

These nominations were shortlisted to the top-five charities and the voting lines re-opened from 1st February until 19th February where our readers once again voted in their hundreds. The winning charity was then chosen – and massive congratulations go to Barrow Farm RDA who were selected as the winners!
