Let’s Pound Grass Sickness!

We have a new fundraising campaign! Like many charities COVID-19 has hit our fundraising activities hard, with all shows and events cancelled for the time being. So for a bit of fun our supporters have suggested we set up a Facebook group for some online FUNdraising activities.

To join in these activities please head over to the group at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/EquineGrassSicknessFundraising/

Alternatively please contribute directly to our Covid Campaign https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/PoundGrassSickness

We believe the cause of equine grass sickness to be multi factorial, and have two particular suspects under investigation – clostridial toxins and mycotoxins produced by fungi. Major projects to examine how these interact, and what other factors need to be present for this deadly disease to develop, are at a critical stage.

We are asking horse owners to come together to help us fight back against the disease. If you can spare a little cash at this difficult time then together we can ’Pound Grass Sickness’
