The White Horse are inviting visitors to give any spare cash to Herds for Change, to buy cows for the Maasai community in Kenya.

General manager Jon Waterhouse said: “This is an opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of people living in the Maasai community in the Mara, Kenya, a part of the world where the ecosystem has become increasingly fragile.

“So we’re asking everyone who pays us a visit over the next couple of weeks to put whatever they can into the cow money box on the bar so we can make Herds for Change a big success and make our mark in the Mara.”

Each cow costs £250, so drinkers are being asked to donate via a money box on the bar, until Sunday, September 3.
