Brooke has launched a new global project to ensure that working animals receive better handling and, as a result, experience improved welfare in the long term.
Brooke was thrilled to be a charity partner at the Longines Global Champions Tour in London over the weekend of 2-4 August.
Brooke has been nominated as Charity of the Year (with an income over £10 million) at this year’s Charity Times Awards, taking place in London on 2 October.
At the High Level Political Forum (HLPF) on Sustainable Development Brooke addressed the United Nations at a plenary session attended by high-level representatives from Government, the private sector, civil society and academia.
Emma Massingale raised over £2000 for Brooke by completing a 1000km cycle around Europe whilst pulling two miniature Shetland ponies and a dog in a custom-made cart.
Brooke is calling for a ban on the trade of donkey skins in Kenya and a crackdown on cross border smuggling of donkeys into Kenya for their skins. This follows an increase in the slaughter of donkeys and an outbreak of disease thought to be linked to the trade.

In April 2019, Patron Alastair Stewart travelled to Senegal to see Brooke’s vital work around the country. He was joined by CEO Petra Ingram and Brooke West Africa Regional Representative Emmanuel Sarr.
In May 2019 Brooke participated in the 87th World Assembly of Delegates of the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE). The event saw a launch of new standards for parveterinary training that Brooke has helped shape.
A grant of £90,000 from the Elise Pilkington Charitable Trust will enable Brooke to make sustainable change to the lives of an estimated 350,000 working horses, donkeys and mules across 68 equine fairs in India over the next three years.
