Online packaging containers superstore OiPPS has donated 210 buckets to The Horse Trust following a social media campaign.

The Horse Trust works closely with veterinary professionals to improve the welfare of horses, ponies, and donkeys. The charity has given millions to fund research projects, clinical residencies, and equipment for veterinary schools and other institutions. Alongside funding vital research, group specializes in providing retirement and respite for working horses and ponies as well as providing specialist care for rescued equids that have suffered from cruelty or neglect.

OiPPS pledged to donate five 20 litre buckets for every five page likes received on its Facebook page throughout November and December 2013. By the end of December, OiPPS had received 210 additional Facebook page likes and, thus, donated 210 buckets.

A pallet of buckets was delivered to The Horse Trust stables in Speen, Buckinghamshire, England, earlier this week, greeted by grateful staff and horses.

“We are so grateful for the buckets we recently received from OiPPS as a result of their campaign on Facebook," said Lucy Compton, fundraising and marketing Assistant at The Horse Trust. "The buckets will be used for a variety of purposes around the yard. ... Everything that is donated helps us to care for the 100 horses, ponies, and donkeys who live at our home of rest."

IPL Group Commercial Director Paul Littlehales said, “We hope our donation will come in very useful for the Trust over the forthcoming days, weeks, and months.”
