£250 raised for Sports Driving Unlimited

During our last few indoor events at Sparsholt we collected items for the hamper raffles which took place on the last event in March. Two food hampers and one fruit hamper were raffled raising £250 which was presented to John Nisbit, partner of the late Amanda Saville who lost her fight against cancer in February. We’ve raised money to ensure they can continue their wonderful work helping everyone enjoy the opportunity to learn to drive and compete at carriage driving no matter what their disability.013

Please thank all your members for the very generous donation to Sports Driving Unlimited. We have been very humbled to the response and generosity of so many. The donation will go towards helping support the likes of Graham, Charlotte and Sarah and some of the younger drivers like Jessica and Ryan who we had with us down at Keysoe competing. This will be by helping to pay their entry fees to compete at other events or go towards training all of which helps to build their confidence and self esteem. John Nisbet
