FREDA MOLOI & ASHLEY NESS
The Highveld Horse Care Unit was among the beneficiaries of the generous mood at Turffontein Racecourse last Saturday when the Peermont Emperors Palace Charity Mile was run.
A cheque for R1,390,000 was handed over by Freda Moloi, Phumelela’s Company Secretary, to Ashley Ness from the unit. The money is made up of contributions for various provinces.
“We deemed it appropriate to do this at the Charity Mile, where other charities were also on the receiving end,” said Moloi.
The Highveld Horse Care Unit is the largest equine welfare organisation in South Africa and was established in 1991. Its workers get involved in any matters relating to equine welfare – from re-homing horses and donkeys, investigating and resolving cruelty and neglect complaints, owner education and medical treatment.
