Meet like-minded people and discover the impact your legacy could have by coming along to one of our exclusive legacy events.
What to expect from our events
We organise events throughout the year especially for our legacy supporters, where you can meet like-minded people in your area and find out more about the impact your legacy could have. They’re a fantastic way to learn more about our work and hear the latest news from our field teams around the world. Hopefully you will be inspired by the work we do and how you can get involved in helping to protect working horses, donkeys and mules around the world for generations to come.
The events are free to attend and we would be delighted if you brought a guest with you (just please let us know in advance). They are usually held during the day – we do morning and afternoon sessions – and you can expect to be with us for about 3 hours.
A week in advance of the event we will send you a confirmation letter which will include clear directions to the venue and more information about what to expect while you are with us. All our venues have plenty of car parking facilities and refreshments will be provided.
Our team will do their best to make you feel at home, comfortable and relaxed. And rest assured you won’t be asked to make a donation or commit to supporting Brooke in any way at the event.
And we ensure our events are as cost effective as they can be due to the great partnerships we have with the venues we utilise.
Sue Pugh, a Brooke supporter of 27 years, writes about her experience of our Woodend Mining Museum event:
"We were warmly welcomed by the Brooke team and enjoyed an informative afternoon. Brooke's Global Animal Welfare Advisor spoke about her recent visit to the Coal Mines of Pakistan and how Brooke are working to improve the lives of both the donkeys and their owners.
We then went on a tour of the Mining Museum and learnt about the Pit Ponies, and we reflected on how their lives all those years ago would be very similar to the donkey’s lives in the coal mines of Pakistan today.
I became interested in the work of Brooke following a visit to Cairo in 1983 where I learnt about Dorothy Brooke and her dedication to the welfare of working horses and donkeys. A further trip abroad to India to see these animals working fuelled my enthusiasm and I have now left Brooke a Gift in my Will."
Event plans for 2021
As you can imagine running our legacy events is a little tricky at the moment - but we have some really great ideas for when things start to get back to normal. In the meantime we are planning to run some remote ‘virtual’ online events. If these are of interest to you – please contact our team via the details below. Alternatively if you are interested in our physical events - please check back in the next few months to see what we've got planned.
