Carr & Day & Martin, the UK’s oldest company involved in the manufacture of top class horse care products, has donated 120 Extra Strength Insect Repellent Sprays worth over £2,000 to leading equine charities World Horse Welfare and the Horse and Pony Protection Association (HAPPA).
World Horse Welfare and HAPPA’s sites in the North West aim to enhance horse and pony welfare and improve the lives of horses in the region as part of the charities’ work through education initiatives, awareness campaigns and hands-on care.
Carr & Day & Martin has worked closely with World Horse Welfare and HAPPA in recent times due to their proximity to Carr & Day & Martin’s head offices and the company’s belief in the charities’ objectives.
The Extra Strength Fly Repellent (RRP £16.35) is a powerful, effective formula which ensures maximum strength and long lasting protection perfect for use in the summer months. The spray contains the active ingredient DEET; developed and used by the armed forces.
Speaking about the donation, Fran Williamson, Centre Manager at Penny Farm said “We’re so grateful for the generous donation of insect spray. The farm is plagued by flies in the summer which causes distress to our horses, so it’s great that we’re stocked up with repellent. It will really help with their care and welfare.
“Carr & Day & Martin has been a valued supporter of Penny Farm for a number of years now, it is much appreciated and helps us to continue with our work in equine welfare.”
On behalf of HAPPA, Emma Finnegan Senior Equine Care Officer, said “This product has been brilliant from the first spray and a little goes a long way! With several sweet itch sufferers on the yard Extra Strength Insect Repellent is a great base for keeping the flies at bay and preventing flair up – thank you Carr & Day & Martin.”
Phillipa Chadwick, Head of Marketing at Carr & Day & Martin, said: “World Horse Welfare and HAPPA are both fantastic organisations and it is a pleasure to be able to donate products to such worthy causes.”
