BEVA Trust wins prestigious BHS Welfare Award

The BEVA Trust, which is the association’s volunteering arm, was presented with the BHS Welfare Award ‘for excellent service in the cause of equine welfare’. It was received by Julian Samuelson, Chair of the BEVA Trust and Fiona Cunnington, BEVA Trust Secretariat, from BHS President Martin Clunes.

The BEVA Trust provides opportunities, support and funding to allow members of the veterinary team to volunteer for projects that enhance equine welfare both locally and globally. Through the support of the BEVA Trust, volunteers have supported the BHS health care campaign and have castrated 342 horses over the past two years. All this support has come in the form of vets, nurses, students, and farriers volunteering their expertise for the day. A total of 729 horses have now attended the health care clinics.

Gemma Stanford, Director of Welfare at The British Horse Society said: “With BEVA Trust’s unwavering help and support we have significantly improved the lives of hundreds of horses.”

Julian Samuelson continued: “Since the start of the project our vets and vet nurses have volunteered their time and worked tirelessly at 16 clinics around the country. They have helped to microchip, passport, vaccinate and castrate horses recognised by Welfare Officers as needing help. I am extremely proud to accept this award on their behalf.”
