The BFBA Executive Committee, like many others across the world, have been shocked by the appalling situation in Ukraine. Many of us have friends, family and colleagues in Ukraine and have heard first-hand the life-shattering impact that the Russian invasion is having.
Money is needed to provide life-saving treatment and supplies and we would like to support the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal. DEC – the Disasters Emergency Committee – brings together 15 leading UK aid charities to raise funds quickly and efficiently at times of crisis overseas. Donations to the DEC appeal will be match funded by the UK Government up to £20 million.

What are we going to do?
- Shoe (or trim) a horse, pony or donkey
- Instead of invoicing in the usual way, ask the client to donate directly to the BFBA Farriers for Ukraine JustGiving page – xxxx
Will you join us?
Every contribution will make a difference – the price of a trim could provide essential hygiene supplies for three people for one month.
BFBA Treasurer, Abby Bunyard, has kicked off the fundraising. “I think we have all been saddened by what we have seen and heard on the news and feel compelled to do what we can to help. Every contribution is valuable.”
“The humanitarian disaster is disgraceful,” continued BFBA President, Craig D’Arcy, “we understand that everyone is facing rising costs in the months ahead but hope that farriers will be able to show their support as they so often do in whatever way that they can.”
