We have been busy over the festive season…
Thank you to everyone who has hosted Phoenix this year. we have all been busy again this year but it’s been different this year now we have got the reindeers, but a slightly quieter one for the ponies. We have done lots of Christmas events again this year, Mr Darcy and liquorice has had a holiday in Chester this year at Grosvenor garden centre. We would also like to say thank you to the Garden Centre for selecting us as your chosen charity to donate your carriage bag money to.
We took the reindeers shopping to the swan shopping centre which we loved the best bit about this was the faces of staff members when walking in the store.
Everyone at Phoenix has had fun this Christmas and our ponies are looking forward to dress up again for next year’s events. We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone whom has supported us
Thank you to all the lovely ladies at Leicestershire & Rutland WI who knitted us these wonderful Neddies.
These adorable Neddies are knitted and kindly donated to us; they are given to those who sponsor one of the Phoenix ponies and also to the children we work with.
Can you knit? Can you help us?
We always welcome new ‘Knitting Nannies’ to send in their knitted Neddies to us. All nannies that knit these for us can be assured that they will be sent to loving homes. This helps our ponies to continue their valuable work. Just give the office a call or email to get involved!
Exciting developments at Phoenix HQ
We are in the process of putting facilities in place at our base in Leicestershire.
Thanks to the Lloyds Community fund we are well on our way… we are now busy fundraising and trying to gain some support from Leicestershire County Council. We have applied for two community grants; one for £10,000 and the other for £2,500. These vital funds will help us to put in place toilet facilities for everyone who visits us to spend their day with our volunteers and animals.
We would like to say a HUGE thank you to B&Q Loughborough for donating to us a toilet system, seat and a chest of drawers. Also thank you to Harlow Bros Ltd. (Long Whatton) who provided us with a purposely built cabin at a massively discounted rate.
Could you spend an hour or two helping us put these vital facilities in place? Or do you work for a company who could possibly make a donation towards our project? If so please get in touch!
A HUGE thank you to David Wilson Homes for thier Golf Charity Day in aid of The Phoenix Children's Foundation!
We are incredibly grateful for the amazing £3,900 raised - thank you
