HAPPA’s Head of Marketing and Fundraising, Julie Pharaoh-Gan, explains further:

“Celebrating the Jubilee at HAPPA is a great way for families and friends alike to have a great day out and support the Charity. Every activity and event is planned to help raise an income to directly support the core mission of rescuing horses and ponies from neglect.

“This year more than ever our fundraising is vital to enable the Charity to continue to help horses in need. We cannot wait to welcome visitors and see their Jubilee pictures at the Farm.”
