Staff and customers at a Driffield tack shop have donated items to help those affected by flooding across the south of England.

Louise Slingsby from the Tack Shed on Brooke Street, started a campaign for customers to donate items to horse sanctuaries suffering in the aftermath of flooding down south after seeing an appeal from a friend on Facebook.

Louise said: “As a southerner myself I know how bad it can get down there, horses are being left tied to gates because noone can look after them. I just wanted to give something back.

“We are asking for any unwanted rugs, headcollars, lead ropes, feed, feed bins, buckets and anything medical to be sent on lorries to our four legged friends that have been severely effected by the floods.

“I know things are tight for everyone but we are unable to move horses out of flooded fields without anything to lead them with.”

The horse-lover has thanked customers and suppliers for their kind donations.

She added: “I had a little girl give me £5 of her pocket money to buy some feed, these people need recognition.

“It doesn’t matter how much they have donated, these people have lost everything and every little helps.

“I would also like to thank Warley Animal Feed and Equine Elite because they have been great.”

Louise has also donated items from Tack Shed and along with customer donations these were sent to flood victims on Monday 10 March.

Items were collected from the Tack Shed on Monday 10 March and transported to flood victims as part of the National Equine Flood Relief Project.
