A GROUP of military medical personnel from RAF Wittering gave up their day off to lend a helping hand at Pablo’s Horse Sanctuary in Long Clawson.

The group of 15, based at Peterborough City Hospital, visited the horse sanctuary last Tuesday and offered their services to Pablo’s founder Carole Fielding, helping with the daily tasks which keep the sanctuary running.

The group stayed for most of the day bringing with them a pot of paint to repaint the fences in the yard in time for summer and took part in cleaning the yard, mucking out and grooming the horses as well.

Sergeant Paul Dawson from RAF Wittering said: “The team really enjoyed their day and some of them, including myself, are planning to continue visiting the stable to lend a helping hand when we can.

“During my visit I also gave Carole some money my family had raised which will go towards paying veterinary bills for the horses in her care.”
