Hundreds of decorative horseshoes made by volunteers across West Lindsey for charity

Volunteers from across West Lindsey have decorated 300 horseshoes to raise money for a leading equine charity.

Volunteers from the Voluntary Centre Services in West Lindsey, ourselves at Acis, Lincolnshire Country Council, LLBS (Lincoln and Lindsey Blind Society) and other organisations worked together to decorate 61 of the horseshoes. The other 239 horseshoes were decorated by various volunteers from the Bransby Horses charity, which works to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome horses.

The horseshoes will now go on sale at the famous Lincoln Christmas market and for £5 each. It is hoped over £2,000 will be raised.

Jill Dickson, our Volunteer and Employability Coordinator, said: “It was a great day working with other organisations from across West Lindsey. Not only were we doing something positive to raise much needed funds for Bransby Horses, but it was great for networking and learning new skills.

Kirsty Mathieson, Bransby Horses Volunteer Coordinator, said: “The shoes were made using recycled horseshoes, kindly donated by farrier, Scott Sykes. Volunteers cleaned, painted and then decorated them using donations of broken jewellery, old decorations, ribbon and natural greenery.

“Amazing volunteers, including Sue, Barbara, Carole and Sophie have spent hours preparing the shoes for sale and staff have also been involved. We hope they will raise in excess of £2,000 which will go directly to the horses, donkeys and mules in our care.”
