This blog first encountered Roy Peckham, proprietor of the Fforest Uchaff Horse and Pony Centre and Pit Pony Sanctuary, a couple of years ago (see `Mr Peckham`s Pit Pony Petition`, this blog, 15 Jan 2010).
We`re pleased to hear that Peckham perseveres with his pit ponies and other needy horses.
During June of this year, his micro-charity (number 1002933) will be participating in the Foundation for Social Improvement`s `Small Charity Week` (see www.thefsi.org).
As part of that event, they will be holding a fundraising event at St David`s Centre in Cardiff (probably Tues 12 June) and are also looking for items with a `celebrity` provenance to sell for fundraising purposes as part of an E-Bay/FSI Small Charities Week sale 11 - 15 June 2012.
If you can help, I`m sure they would glad to hear from you - contact them via their website at www.pitponies.co.uk .
Speaking personally I`ve always been fond of our four footed friends and am very glad to give this interesting charity a bit of a plug.
This is Iggy, one of a number of ponies to benefit from the sanctuary. To learn more about Iggy and a number of other ponies at the centre, click on http://pitponies.co.uk/ponies.aspx .
