Sell Your Stuff

Sell your unwanted goods and you can help hardworking equines, like the donkeys labouring in dark and dangerous coal mines in Pakistan.

We were shocked to discover the terrible conditions these animals endure, thousands of feet below ground. They work for up to 10 hours a day in suffocating heat, injuring themselves on sharp rocks as they carry heavy loads through narrow tunnels.

Give the coal mine donkeys of today hope for tomorrow

  • £17 could pay to train a saddler, protecting working animals from unnecessary injury and discomfort.
  • £50 could equip a farrier with everything they need to help animals walk more comfortably.
  • £129 could help fund and train a team of local animal lovers to go from village to village, spreading our animal welfare messages. Giving a better quality of life for animals for many years to come.

You can sell just about anything if the price is right. My favourite is vintage costume jewellery. For items that can still be purchased new, use the internet to find their cheapest price. eBay is helpful for pricing older items. I ask for about half the price, including postage.

Brooke supporter Jenny runs a stall every Monday at Ludlow Market.
