Donated Funds

Rose Kennelly

Rose Kennelly 14 asked if we could help. She is going on a trip to Sri Lanka working with underprivileged and disabled children within the slums of Colombo. We were happy to help and donated £25 to her funds.

Dre Curtis

Dre Curtis,4, was involved in a serious road traffic accident in which members of his family were killed. Dre himself is in stoke mandeville hospital, he is now sadly paralysed and cannot come home until a special wheel chair is purchased. The whole of Torrington is fundraising for the cause, and we have decided to donate £1000 to the family to use as they feel fit at this sad time. We hope this can go someway to getting him home soon.

Vanessa who has MS requests funding for a new electric chair

Vanessa who is the daughter of an ex cavalier and is suffering with MS, asked whether we could help with the finance for a new electric scooter.

We agreed to help but instead of donating straight from our limited funds we organised a race night on Saturday 9th October 2004. With the help of family and friends we raised over £1300. Vanessa needed £600 so the balance was left to go towards normal cavalier expenditure.
