We Need YOUR help!
Could you spare the cost of a cup of coffee?
|Dear Tia Supporter,
You will be aware that with the ongoing health concerns and unprecedented restrictions related to COVID-19, we are all in a very different world than any of us had ever envisioned. Yet even in these unprecedented times, our dogs and horses still need to be cared for.
As a registered charity dedicated to the welfare of our animals, we are trying really hard to keep things as normal as possible so that we can continue to focus on feeding, sheltering and tending to them. However, over the last few days, the stark reality of what the next few weeks, and possibly next few months, will mean to us is hitting home hard.
About half of Tia’s income is generated by our shops, yet we have now had to close them all and we have no idea when we will be able to reopen them. Although the Government is doing much to help businesses, the help for charities is not yet clear and we do not know what help they will provide, what form it will take, how and to which charities it will go and how quickly it will be done.
In the short term, we face having to make some difficult decisions unless we can get help to keep us going during this unparalleled disruption.
How you can help: Why not send us the price of a cup of coffee?
Cafes, restaurants and most coffee shops are closed. If you can spare just £10/month, (the price of just one medium cup of coffee a week), until the Coronavirus disruptions are over, it could make all the difference to us and to all our animals.
(Even if you are unable to make a regular donation, please consider making a single donation – every penny helps feed and look after our animals).

Are there any other ways you can help?
As we all have to deal with a world where less shops are open, we will probably all make more use of on-line shopping than before. But even this can be used to help us without any cost to yourselves.
Many on-line retailers will donate 0.5% to 1% of the net price of a purchase to a charity of your choice, at no cost to you. Please check out the retailers below and consider helping us by choosing Tia Rescue as your preferred charity:
