Donate your leftover currency to SAFE

SAFE (Saving Abandoned Fly-Grazing Equines) aid horses and ponies who have been abandoned or neglected and keep them ‘SAFE’ and away from harm

Founded in winter 2014, SAFE was established in response to a local crisis when 38 horses and ponies were left abandoned in a field in Binfield, Berkshire. SAFE is run by a small group of horse- loving volunteers across Berkshire and Surrey. The fundamental objectives of the organisation are the 3 R’s – Rescue, Rehabilitate and Rehome.

Volunteers at SAFE look after the horses, gain their trust over time and with the help of vets, nurse them back to health

The horses come into the care of SAFE with a range of health issues, frightened and timid having had little or no human contact. Typically, the majority of abandoned horses are young colts, but occasionally SAFE rescue older horses and mares. SAFE aim to re-home all horses that they rescue and rehabilitate.

It is easy to donate your leftover currency to SAFE. To get started, download and fill out the SAFE exchange form.
