TWO county based life saving charities have received money from Brook House Farm Livery and Equestrian Training Centre at Scamblesby.
The sum of £700 split equally between the Lincolnshire & Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance and LIVES (Lincolnshire Integrated Voluntary Emergency Services) was raised by visitors following a recently held open day and fundraising event at Brook House Farm’s equestrian training centre.
The cheques were presented to Paul Croft, vice chairman of the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance, and Margaret Hobson, co-ordinator of the Goulceby and Scamblesby first responders.
“This is the third year that we have raised money for these two charities which we and others in the Wolds community have benefited from. We believe that the training centre is playing a positive and constructive role in improving horse riding techniques with our learner riders. But it is comforting to know that we have such first class services to draw upon if required,” said Roger Strawson, proprietor of Brook House Farm Livery and Equestrian Training Centre.
More than £1,500 has been raised for the two charities by Brook House Farm Livery and Equestrian Training Centre in the last three years.
Horse and pony riders from a 20 miles radius including Woodhall Spa, Louth, Horncastle, Market Rasen and Grimsby attend the centre and enjoy hacking through the Wolds countryside.
