7th August 2005
This event was held in memory of Vicky Johnson (right), who was lost to Sudden Death Syndrome in August 2003 aged just 20 years.
The sun did not shine on us much on this day, and unfortunately we did not quite match the wonderful amount that was raised in 2004 in Vicky’s memory.
However, we greatly appreciate everyone’s kind help – we had a good day, and total amount raised is looking to be around £500 by the time we have calculated up all the monies raised with the tombola, raffles, “name the bear”, cake stall, selling of CRY wrist bands and so on.
The stallion raffle is still ongoing, and we appreciate all the donations that came in through various ways.
Our total is still a great achievement for one day of fundraising!!
The hospitality of the Davenport-Lister family was, as always, wonderful. They made sure everyone was happy and content, and Barbara Davenport put on a delicious buffet tea.
We thank you very much for looking after us Barbara.
A special ‘thank you’ also to Barbara’s dear mum, who is always very kind and caring and donates money to the cause – a very sweet lady!
We would like to thank many sponsors who donated goods for the event, including grooming brushes; fly sprays; horse shampoos; rug set; blue chip sweatshirt; and horse treats. Home made flapjack was sold by my dear Aunty Ivy, and there were lots of kind donations from many people including:
