A CASH-strapped horse sanctuary is getting back on its feet following the crippling foot and mouth crisis.
But the Hack Horse Sanctuary in Rossett is in desperate need of urgent funds and supplies to help their good work continue.
The sanctuary held a fundraising horse show in Farndon on Sunday which made more than £2,000 of which about half will go to the cause.
But owner Pam Bluck says it costs about £20,000 a year to keep the place running and because of foot and mouth, many of this year's fundraisers have been cancelled.
It is the first horse show the sanctuary has held in Farndon, but because it was went so well they are hoping to organise another one for September.
Mrs Bluck said: 'It was really quite a successful day. Everybody really enjoyed themselves.
'The weather was dull and it did rain at times but in spite of that, we had a good turnout and were asked to try and organise another one.'
Mrs Bluck, who runs the sanctuary with help from her husband William, two sons Peter, 30, and Ben, 26, and two friends, said the fundraisers are invaluable in allowing the centre to keep operating.
