We held a online photo competition in aid of ward 14 at the Great North Children's hospital at the RVI, treating young people diagnosed with cancer. Thank you to everyone who entered, with your support we raised a fantastic £1,362. The children and staff on the ward chose the winning photos and had a wonderful time looking through each entry. Keep an eye on our website and Facebook page for more charity fundraising competitions.
Ellen Valley RC sent one team and two individauls to the Horse Trails qualifier in May, team consisiting of Catherine Harrington, Janette Irving, Holly and Michael Maxwell as well as Elaine Allan and Debbie Cartmell as individuals. Elaine and Debbie round three fantastic rounds, finishing just outside of the placings. The team however won and qualified for the Championships in Oxfordshire in August. We wish them the best of luck!
This year the Ellen Valley RC sent only one person to the qualifier, Hayley Graham and Bordergrove Maddison. They pulled out all of the stops and came third in the Novice Dressage class and won the Novice Riding Test class, securing their qualification for the Championships in Lincolnshire in September! Well done Hayley.
Our team of Catherine, Janette, Holly and Michael had a fantastic day putting in a wonderful performance to come second overall! The team had a wonderful day, avoiding the rain and soaking up the challenging course. A huge thank you to Lucy who acted as Chef d'equip, Anita as travelling groom and Helen and David, who not only helped the team but offered to volunteer on both the Saturday and Sunday. Without their support of friends and volunteers the team would not have been able to compete. We thank them for all of their support.
