Horsewatch raffle raises £200

Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance (DLRAA) is saying thank you to Five Pits Horsewatch & Countryside Access Group after they held a raffle to raise money for them.

Amy Cooke said: “Our group held a raffle to fund raise for the local air ambulance raising £200. Tickets were sold at all of our events beginning with the BHS Access ride in May 2015 and the raffle was drawn at our Trec event on the 9th August 2015. Raffle prizes were kindly donated from both local and larger companies and all the prizes were horse related.

We made good use of the banners the charity provided and incorporated them into one of the Trec Obstacles. We chose to fund raise for the local air ambulance as they provide a fantastic service, which sadly is used far too often at horse shows and for riding accidents.”

Thank you to everyone who participated in the raffle.
