Warwickshire racing team renew partnership with local lifesaving charity
Dan Skelton Racing has renewed its partnership with the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance (WNAA) for another year, continuing its support to the lifesaving service.
Dan Skelton Racing was established in 2013 and is set in the heart of the Warwickshire countryside. The home of Team Skelton is set across two yards, Lodge Hill and Badbury Hill Barn, which together offer some of the finest facilities for training the racehorse in the UK.
“We have proudly supported the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance for a number of years as they supply an invaluable service for our industry and the wider equestrian community and we are thrilled to of renewed our partnership with them for another year,” said Dan Skelton.
The air ambulance crews deliver critical care at road traffic collisions, sports and leisure events, medical emergencies – such as cardiac arrest and accidents at home – and other incidents needing expert pre-hospital medical interventions 24/7, 365 days a year.
“Winning the Coral Gold Cup with Le Milos a few weeks ago was a great result for the whole team, as it is a historic race which we hadn’t won before. The race was shown live on ITV and attracted a lot of media coverage – pictures of Le Milos carrying the Air Ambulance logo were shown in the television coverage and were prominent on both social media channels and in the press in the days following the race,” added Dan.
Partnerships with corporate teams such as these provide vital support to ensure the vital service can continue to save more lives.
Jo Payne, National Partnerships Manager for the charity said:
“We are delighted to announce the continued support with Dan Skelton Racing, and we were thrilled to see our logo worn by champion jockey Harry Skelton when winning the Gold Cup. We know all the team at the yard in Warwickshire value the work the charity does as they have supported us for many years, bringing awareness of our lifesaving work to the equine community and its connections.”
The charity is celebrating its 20th anniversary of lifesaving service across Warwickshire and Northamptonshire in 2023. To help mark the momentous milestone the charity is asking for supporters to send in any photos, footage, clippings, or share their stories to help showcase how well the service has developed over the years into the leading provider of pre-hospital critical care it is today.
