Easter Monday Triumph

April 21, 2017 at 3:09 pm

On a dry but chilly Easter Monday we took part in our first Harness Horse Parade at the Ardingly Showground.  Our Dales pony Coke pulled our Fenix disabled driving carriage, driven by our driving coach Steve Dale, and accompanied by Sally O’Neill.  Steve had spent all day Saturday grooming Coke and cleaning the carriage until they shone like new pins, and his hard work was rewarded when we were awarded three rosettes and a First Class Award for the best Newcomer.  We were all absolutely thrilled, a really fantastic result! Our thanks are due to all the volunteers who turned out to offer help and support.

 

A very successful day at Lingfield Park

April 15, 2017 at 11:20 am

Our bucket collection at Lingfield Park on Good Friday, 14th April, was a great success as the kind racegoers emptied their pockets of £1335!

Dame Judi came along with her family, and was interviewed with Sally O’Neill, for both ITV television and the Racecourse PA system.  Sally presented a prize to a winning trainer, and our volunteers paraded in the ring with the silks placards for several races.  So not only a financial success but great publicity for us as well.

We are very grateful to Lingfield Park Racecourse for giving us this opportunity to fund raise, and also to all the volunteers who turned up on the day to help.
