05 Jan Raffle raises £1010 for Injured Jockeys Fund
Elizabeth Day is pleased to announce that the raffle in aid of The Injured Jockeys Fund has raised £1,010. The winning ticket belonged to Miss Rosie Cockerton, who has won an original piece of artwork of her horse or pet.
Elizabeth says: “Having worked in the horse racing industry myself for a few years, and knowing what jockeys have to do in order to stay fit, healthy and mentally strong, I only have great admiration for their dedication and determination to keep going in a challenging environment. So to be able to raise money through my paintings for these courageous young men and women has been a great honour. I would like to personally thank everyone who so kindly bought raffle tickets to help raise funds, I would also like to thank Bob Young and his team for allowing me to hold the event, and Lady Oaksey and Claire Hazel of Oaksey House for providing me with greater understanding of the amazing work this charity has achieved to support jockeys and their families.”
