At the end of November 2021, Harry Hall asked their supporters to nominate and vote for three charities to become the company’s charity partners for 2022. The Harry Hall team is delighted to announce the winners. Each of the winning charities will receive financial support from Harry Hall in 2022.
“We received over 7,000 votes this year which is more than twice the number of votes that were placed in 2020. It’s just great to see the equestrian community take the time to vote for the charities that matter so much to them. We look forward to welcoming our 2022 charity partners and of course donating and raising money for them” said Managing Director Liz Hopper.
The three winners are:
- Hope Pastures who rescue, rehabilitate and re-home horses, ponies and donkeys in need, giving people the chance to meet them and to learn how to look after them. Leonnie Martin, sanctuary manager said: “As a small charity this is absolutely fantastic news for us, and we are delighted that we have been voted into the Harry Hall top three charity partners for 2022.”
- The Gambia Horse and Donkey Trust, which aims to reduce rural poverty in the Gambia through improving the health, welfare and productivity of all animals, but working animals in particular. Heather Armstrong, director said: “We are a small charity that punches above its weight in terms of getting things done.”
- World Horse Welfare which works with horses, horse owners, communities, organisations and governments to help improve welfare standards and stamp out suffering in the UK and worldwide. Roly Owers, chief executive, said: “World Horse Welfare is thrilled to be one of Harry Hall’s charity partners for 2022. As their first ever charity partner we already feel very much part of the family and over the coming months look forward to sharing some of our work helping horses in need around the world.”
During 2022, anyone joining the Harry Hall One Club, taking out a new insurance policy or going shopping at their website will trigger a 5p donation to the charity fund. There will also be the option for customers to make their own additional donation at the checkout.

In May and June 2021, Harry Hall doubled the value of the donations to the charity partners. Also in June, Harry Hall raised over £9,000 with a charity raffle where Susan Campbell from Aberdeen won a brand new Cheval Liberte Horse Trailer with a one-year Harry Hall Trailer insurance policy.
In 2020 Harry Hall promoted a series of campaigns which helped to create and promote a feel-good factor during the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Heroes campaign celebrated key workers with gifts, while 10 percent of the value of sales was donated to NHS Charities Together. Another campaign was aimed at recognising and supporting the equestrian venues, yards and clubs, with equestrians nominating their favourites.
