Pony camp for young lady battling cancer

Grant awarded on 13th August 2015


You are 11 years old and your passion is horse riding. Without warning, everything changes; you have a rare type of brain tumour. Treatment is surgery, followed by chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

Throughout all this, this little girl remains upbeat and positive. She tries to carry on with her day-to-day life, including riding at her local stables. Her treatment finished in June 2013, but sadly in May 2014 this courageous young lady relapsed. More treatment is ongoing. Her aim is to attend Pony Camp, but for this she will need her own set of tack.


Your support has made a difference…

A note from mum:
“R*** is absolutely elated.
You have just made one young lady very happy. To date R*** has only been able to dream of owning her own saddle and bridle.
We are struggling as a family, emotionally, physically and financially. Your news today has just offset all of the above, if only you could see R***’s face.”
