World Horse Welfare is delighted to announce that well-known and highly regarded equestrian brand LeMieux is raising funds for the charity’s vital work as their official corporate partnership launched 1 August 2023.
This new initiative signals a building on the previous relationship between LeMieux and World Horse Welfare, which has already included in-kind product and over £20,000 raised in the past year. A button at checkout on the equine clothing brand’s online shop allows customers to make a donation to World Horse Welfare, which has provided these valuable funds to the charity. These funds will help enable it to continue to rehabilitate the horses and ponies that come into its care – like Lemon a Shetland pony that founders Robert and Lisa LeMieux rehomed from the charity in February this year.
The new partnership will see corporate funding, further checkout fundraising and some exciting cause related marketing campaigns, which are in the pipeline.
“I am excited to share that LeMieux, has joined forces with World Horse Welfare to make a positive impact on the equestrian community. Our partnership is rooted in our shared commitment to horse welfare, knowing that when horses are well-cared for, they bring immense joy to their riders. Our fundraising, and website donations goes towards supporting World Horse Welfare’s crucial resources and initiatives. Our collaboration strives to ensure that horses receive the care and respect they deserve. I am personally honoured to be a part of this effort.”Robert LeMieux, Founder at LeMieux
“Following a year appreciating customer donations, matched funding and other adhoc support from LeMieux, we’re very much looking forward to formalising and growing the partnership with further funding and other exciting joint initiatives in the pipeline. The support of LeMieux is making a huge difference to our work in supporting the welfare of horses and is a wonderful example of an integrated corporate partnership that brings benefits to both parties.”Peter Rowbottom, Director of Fundraising at World Horse Welfare
