Herd of the Hospice? Thank you so much to everyone who joined the herd...

From July - September 24 life-sized horses, uniquely designed and decorated by local artists, galloped into parks and public spaces across West Kent and East Sussex.  The Herd of the Hospice? campaign, organised by the charity Hopsice in the Weald, has been a huge success!  The herd has received the most amazing reaction from the public, raising vital awareness and funds for the charity whilst ensuring the community it serves has fun along the way. 

October saw the community bid a very sad farewell to the wonderful 24 horses that were part of the Herd of the Hospice? campaign.  All of the horses were sold at an exciting live auction on Wednesday 11th October in Royal Victoria Place, Tunbridge Wells.  The campaign has raised a stagering £100,000 to date, with funds still being processed. 

Thank you so much to everyone who joined the herd and ensured the campaign was such a success.

"Charter Tax recently became a Business Partner of Hospice in the Weald as we were keen for our business to get involved with a local charity and we immediately took up the opportunity to sponsor a horse, appropriately named “Charter”. Janet Paterson and Mark Howard are the Principals of Charter Tax; Janet herseld has a love of horses and enjoys competing while not working and Mark heads up the Private Client team so it was an obvious project for us to get involved in." 

Karen Cahalin, Charter Tax
