Songbirds, a community Fundraising choir based in Crawley, have included us as one of their three chosen charities for the year. Their first event is on Saturday 9th December from 5.00pm until 7.00pm at St. Mary’s Church, Southgate, Crawley, West Sussex. Entry is free and there will be refreshments. Donations will be asked for as attendees leave, which will go into their charity pot for distribution at the end of their financial year. Sally and James will be attending to talk about our work.

One of our helpers has nominated us the beneficiary for a Quiz Night in Copthorne on 29th November at 7.45pm. We are not yet sure if tickets are open to all, but we will find out. Sally will attend to  talk about our work.

Saz and Caroline are also organising a course of dance classes in the Spring. Details to follow.

Horley Lions Donate £1,500.00

July 26, 2017 at 11:25 am

On Sunday 23rd July East Grinstead Lions held their annual Donkey Derby and Little Brook Pony Club supplied the Jockeys for the day,  (a brave and perilous task!).

Whilst she was there, Sally O’Niell was presented with a cheque from Horley Lions  for £1,500.00 from money raised at their horse show in May, when East Park RDA provided the judges.

This is a very generous donation and a will be a great help towards our running costs, as we have vet fees, farrier fees, insurance etc. to pay, and a hard thing to raise funds for.

Carriage Driving Update

July 20, 2017 at 12:38 pm

Heatherley Cheshire Home in Copthorne have yet to start carriage driving, as a suitable day of the week has yet to be agreed.

We hope to start teaching two blind ladies the art of carriage driving in early August, once they have attended a ‘trial’ session with our driving coach.

We have entered our two driving ponies, Guy and Coke in the Pleasure Driving Class at the Edenbridge and Oxted Show to be held over the August Bank Holiday. There will also be a Bucket Collection, so please give generously.
