Making magic happen

Thank you!

We are overwhelmed and on top of the world at how far we have come in such a short space of time. Thank you so much for being part of this and making the magic happen for our participants. There is still a big mountain to climb, but we are all doing this for those that need the ponies the most. We are their voice and the ponies are their freedom.  

We've had some good news:

The stables have been granted Asset of Community Value (ACV) status by Richmond Council, which provides the stables with extra legal protection from development. The Teddington Society put forward this application to the council, so we'd like to extend our thanks to them for making this happen.

In addition, the stables and some of our fantastic participants were featured on BBC London. We were over the moon and are so thankful to the BBC for making our story heard.

We will keep going!

We still have a way to go, but we are feeling positive, especially thanks to all the lovely comments you have been leaving for us. They offer a huge boost! You can help us by sharing our campaign with your friends and family and spreading the word. We have seen that shares on social media have a huge impact on donations.

Once again, thank you so much for all your support and kind words! 

Natalie and everyone at Park Lane Stables

We will leave you with this:

'If your dreams are full of ponies who else would you want to kiss good night?'
