Postponed charity equine event raises £600
A Richmond School student held a charity equine event last month.
Gracie Donoghue, 16, organised the event which has raised almost £600 so far.
Held at Foxberry Chasers near Caldwell the event had been postponed from the beginning of the summer.
It is the third annual charity event Gracie has organised.
The competition consisted of showing and jumping classes.
Gracie, who has just completed her GCSE’s at Richmond School, said: “The event was a huge success which raised lots of money for great causes.
“I would like to thank everyone who sponsored and donated prizes and to Sara and Phil who let us use such great facilities.”
Competitor Daisy Hunter, 13, said:“Gracie’s event is brilliant fun and all the money raised goes to charity.
“My brother and I did really well and came away with seven rosettes between us.
“Gracie is fantastic and organises it herself and the prizes just get better each year.
“I can’t wait for next year.”
The event has raised money for Help for Heroes and the MS Society.
