Your legacy could put an end to cruelty and neglect for horses, ponies and donkeys in Wales
You don’t have to be wealthy to leave a legacy to the animals at Lluest ….
Lluest itself was the legacy of Ginny Hadjuckiewicz, she was so distressed by the appalling conditions and handling of wild hill ponies and foals in local sales, that in 1985 she decided to found a charity for Welsh equines. To offer them a refuge and safe haven. Sadly, Ginny lost her own life in 1994 at the young age of 38, leaving behind Lluest Horse and Pony Trust as her Legacy. Since then, we have worked tirelessly to continue the hard work of Ginny, to rescue, rehabilitate and find approved long term Guardian loan homes for horses, ponies and donkeys who have been the victims of cruelty, neglect, abandonment, and poor circumstances.
“Lluest is a charity that touches my heart, I’ve seen their amazing work not only helping equines in desperate need, but healing people too. I don’t have children, so writing my will was difficult. I’d seen firsthand how people’s generous legacies had saved Lluest, so I took great comfort in leaving a legacy to Lluest. I’m doing my bit to future proof this wonderful charity.”
I know the legacy I leave will help ponies in desperate need. It also gives me great comfort knowing that if anything were to happen to me that not only my Lluest loan pony, but my own personal pony will be safe and well cared for, for the rest of her life.Anonymous Guardian Home
Over our 38-year existence legacies have literally been a lifeline to the Trust and to ponies like orphaned foal Bunny (pictured). We receive no government funding and legacies are vital in ensuring we can continue to give equines in Wales a chance of a safe and loved future.
From feral mountain ponies and tiny orphan foals to neglected thoroughbreds and frightened mules, we’ve given them all a second chance to live a life worth living, both at our centre and in loving homes through our guardianship scheme. Ponies like Connie who was found just in the nick of time, you can read her story here.
