We would like to say a big thank you to everyone that took part in the Charity Walk of St Cuthberts Way, Scottish Borders, helping to raise funds for the Injured Jockeys Fund.
The walk started at the beautiful Hazelrigg Stables, home to Rose Dobbin Racing. Walkers made their way to St Cuthbert’s Cave, and back to the yard, where on return enjoyed Fish & Chips along with a guided tour (and even got to see a horse swimming).
Rhona Elliot, former amateur jockey and trainer, organised the fundraising event in support of the IJF, Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s. Rhona suffers with MS and in 2004 she set up the MS Borders Racing Club, aimed at helping people with MS to enjoy racing as well as raising awareness of the MS Society. Since setting up the club, she has been able to raise generous sums for many charities including the IJF for which we are so grateful.
