GAIN Equine Nutrition are delighted to launch our 2021 ‘#DonateAChristmasDinner’ campaign across our social media channels from Thursday the 25th of November. We want you to upload a picture of your horse tacked up for the festive season or even your favourite picture of them throughout the year and tag “GAIN Equine Nutrition” on our  Facebook , Twitter or Instagram. For every entry that we receive, we will donate a Christmas Dinner to the Irish Horse Welfare Trust (IHWT). The campaign will run until 17th December so there is plenty of time to get into the festive spirit. This is a very worthy campaign to help horses and ponies in need this Christmas and every entry counts!

Joanne Hurley, Irish Country Manager at GAIN Equine Nutrition mentioned, “GAIN has a long-standing relationship with the IHWT and we are delighted to continue our support towards such a worthwhile charity. The IHWT do fantastic work in the rehabilitation and rehoming of both horses and ponies and we are very happy that we can offer them nutritional support to help them enrich the lives of these horses and ponies.”

Shelley Phipps, of the IHWT said, “We’ve had a very busy year here at the IHWT and a successful year rehoming. We are really grateful to GAIN for their ongoing support for all these years in helping us to rehabilitate and give these horses and ponies the nutrition they need.”
