Minnie and Milo need your help!
by David Simister

AN ANIMAL sanctuary are calling on Champion readers to giving a helping hand to two ponies which travelled hundreds of miles to escape a hard life.

Minnie & Milo, two rescued Dartmoor Hilltop Ponies, arrived at Woodlands Animal Sanctuary on February 1, after an exhausting journey all the way from Plymouth.

They were greeted by excited volunteers from the sanctuary, who are looking forward to making a difference to their lives. As the ponies are wild staff said it has been difficult to establish their condition and it will take a long time to build up their trust. The rescue was necessary as hundreds of the ponies have been shot on Dartmoor and hundreds more have been sent to Italy for their skins.

To sponsor Minnie & Milo please give the sanctuary a call on 01704 823293 or go online at
