On Friday, 6th October 2023, we were delighted to welcome HEROS Charity and donate race naming rights to our 2.47pm race with Kate Mills, primary fundraiser for the charity, invited to present trophies to winning connections.
The charity was founded by Grace Muir in 2006 and began with a primary focus on ex-racehorse re-training and re-homing. The charity has now expanded and now also provides a range of education and training including; alternative to school placements for students from 11 – 16 years old and courses for post 16yr learning. HEROS specialises in engaging SEN students and those who are struggling in mainstream education.
The charity were also our nominated bucket collectors and raised over £1,900 on the day which was amazing.
