Stacey Moore’s ‘Every Horse Remembered’ artwork raises £1200, for working horse and donkey charity Brooke

Last Friday saw two talented animal-loving entrepreneurs join forces to raise funds for Brooke’s ‘Every Horse Remembered’ campaign marking 100-years since the end of the First World War.

Artist Stacey Moore, known for her stunning drawings of Dales wildlife and Leyburn-based Hannah Russell, who writes books about her miniature Shetland pony Little Alf, joined together and created a commemorative piece of artwork which was put up for auction at the Brooke Gala Dinner this Friday.

The event, at Headlam Hall in Darlington, attracted an audience of around 130 people, including ITV award winning journalist and broadcaster and Brooke Patron, Alastair Stewart, OBE and Brooke Chief Executive, Petra Ingram.

A grand auction, conducted by Alastair Stewart OBE, included the “Every Horse Remembered” artwork by Ms Moore and the original was sold to an anonymous bidder for £1200.

The money will go to help ease the suffering of hardworking horses, donkeys and mules and the people that depend on them for their livelihood in some of the world’s poorest communities. Brooke works across Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Latin America with owners, communities, service providers, governments and international organisations to make long lasting improvements to the lives of animals and their owners. The “Every Horse Remembered” campaign marks the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War remembering the lives lost.

Hawes-born artist Stacey Moore, who was a guest, at the ball said: “It was an honour to be asked to be involved and I’m very happy that it raised valuable funds for such a fantastic charity.”

You can purchase a limited edition print of the original from Stacey Moore Art www.staceymooreart.com for £120 with £6 of every print sold donated to Brooke.

Caroline Robertson, Brooke Senior Regional Fundraising officer, said: “It was an unforgettable occasion and everyone at Brooke is thrilled that the drawing very kindly donated by Stacey raised such a lot of money. Thank you for bringing us closer to achieving our vision of a world in which working horses, donkeys and mules are free from suffering.”
