The organisation has been chosen as one of Biggin Hill Airport's charities
A farm that cares for rescued animals has received a donation of more than £1,000 from staff at Biggin Hill Airport.
Foal Farm, on Jail Lane, Biggin Hill, has been caring for rescued animals for more than 50 years, and the donation will help it to continue its work.
The farm’s manager, Debra Taylor, thanked the staff for their support when she was presented with a cheque for £1,257 by Siobhan Curtis, wife of airport managing director Will Curtis, and community engagement manager Colin Hitchins.
“The amount of regular income generated by Foal Farm supporters enables us to help all the animals that come through our gates. Your kind support has been a part of helping this to happen,” she said.
“With our menage of horses, donkeys, cows, pigs, sheep, goats, chickens, ducks and geese, we have a big cost commitment to cover.
“While all of these will now spend the rest of their natural lives at the farm, our rescued dogs, cats, rabbits and other small animals are returned to good health and then placed in secure and loving vetted homes.”
