Lynch visits rescue center in Ireland

Wednesday, 07 December 2011

Irish showjumper Denis Lynch visited an equine rescue centre in Mallow, Co Cork yesterday (6 December) to see how the money he collected for the charity is being put to use.
The rider, who is based in Germany, raised €190,000 for the the Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ISPCA) to help tackle Ireland's equine crisis.


ISPCA Honorary Secretary, Barbara Bent said, “Denis’s enthusiasm and belief in helping to raise these funds has made a real difference.  “Horses from many different sad and cruel situations; emaciated TB older mares, weak and injured trotting ponies and foals, starved and neglected young horses, are all benefiting from Denis’s commitment to make a difference.”


And Denis said, “I am impressed by the great work being done by the ISPCA. It’s very distressing when you read and see reports of any animal being mistreated or neglected but the care and attention they receive from the staff here does give you great hope. I hope to be able to continue supporting the society.”
