SPANA Announced as Charity Of The Year By KBIS British Equestrian Insurance
We are delighted to announce that KBIS British Equestrian Insurance has named The Society of Protection of Animals Abroad (SPANA) as its charity of the year.
KBIS is one of the UK’s leading horse insurance specialists and offers insurance at every level of equestrianism. The family-run business has always shown support for equestrian-related charities and SPANA is the latest charity to benefit, with all the funds raised supporting their efforts helping working animals in many of the world’s poorest communities.
Emma Cover, KBIS Marketing Director, said of the partnership: “We are pleased to be working with SPANA to help provide funds for their invaluable work, we are looking forward to getting involved with fundraising activities, starting with the SPANA World Tea Party.”
David Bassom, Director of Fundraising and Marketing at SPANA, said: “SPANA is thrilled and honoured to be chosen as KBIS British Equestrian Insurance’s charity of the year. This charity partnership will raise vital funds for SPANA’s work to support working animals, including horses, donkeys and camels, who toil tirelessly to provide the water, food and transport developing communities need to survive.’
SPANA improves the lives of working animals around the world in three key ways – providing free veterinary treatment, training local animal owners and professionals, and teaching local children about animal welfare. Last year alone they provided treatment to 283,552 working animals and educated 48,995 children in developing countries. Their community training programme works with owners to change attitudes and behaviours, and promote humane treatment of animals, which therefore reduces preventable problems and the need for veterinary intervention. With this generous donation from KBIS, we look forward to funding even more vital and valuable work to help build a brighter future for working animals.
