Break In at BTRC followed by Incredible Support…

Drop Off Point Volunteer Kim Jones with BTRC CEO Gillian Carlisle

On the evening of 5th August 2020 BTRC was unfortunately broken into and a large amount of tack, rugs, boots, travelling equipment, yard equipment was stolen, as well as all of our demonstration tack and equipment.

Following the break in we posted a social media appeal, asking for any unwanted items to be donated to BTRC such as tack/rugs/boots etc. to help replace our stolen items. The appeal went viral with the post being shared over 1,500 times and with more than 178,000 people viewing the post we started to be contacted by people all over the UK willing to help out.

What followed was a huge effort by BTRC supporters around the country to set up local drop off points. 23 drop off points were arranged all around the UK from Dumbarton in Scotland, down to Exeter in Devon and across to Norfolk on the East Coast.  Each drop off point volunteered to liaise with supporters and hold donated items for BTRC until we were able to collect it, some using their yards or places of work and others even using their spare bedrooms!
