We were delighted to welcome representatives from the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance to the yard on Tuesday to formally launch our fundraising partnership with the charity.
Paramedic Philippa Gibbs came to meet some of the horses and to receive a donation from Dan Skelton Racing made by the fund-raising efforts of the team. She met some of the horses, and even had time for a picture with Like Minded. Philippa said, “It was an absolute pleasure to have my photo taken with Like Minded. We’re delighted that Dan Skelton Racing has made a commitment to support the work we do.
Working with racehorses on a daily basis, we are acutely aware of the work of the Air Ambulance and what an incredible service it provides in the event of an accident on the gallops or around the yard. Dan said: “I have supported charities in the past but all horse riders are aware of the need for the air ambulance; each mission costs £1,700 so our first target is to reach that and cover the cost of 1 mission. You really do never know when you will need it but its nice to know it is there if you do.
