Hillside Hay Appeal
October’s box donation is going towards Hillside Animal Sanctuary’s hay appeal. Each month we donate 20p from the sale of our monthly subscription box to a different animal sanctuary or vegan cause. Hillside was founded in 1995 to help bring public awareness to the millions of animals suffering in the farming industry. They have many mouths to feed and are concerned about the winter months – find out why….
Following last winter’s extremely wet winter, came a prolonged hot dry summer which caused a severe shortage of grass. While many struggled to provide their animals with sufficient grass during the summer, Hillside’s animals are fortunate to graze on marshlands which continued to produce grass even through the long dry spell. This meant they didn’t have to supplement them with extra hay. However, they are very very concerned about the coming winter and predicted hay shortages. These have already seen the price of an average small bale rise from £4 to £5. If you would like to help with their hay appeal you can do so here.
