I have been passed your cheque for £1,000, being a donation from the proceeds of your Horse Show. I am delighted to hear that the Horse Show was successful and am very grateful that Horley Lions continue to support us in this way.
Your donation will help us to pay for vets, farriers, insurance and all the extra costs not covered by the riding session income.
We are currently running 7 sessions per week, with 6 children per session.
Much Needed Defibrillator installed in Horley.
After considerable effort we have finally been able to install a defibrillator in the town. Chic the owner of Seven Sins Tattoo Parlour has been a keen supporter of our Club and has been sponsoring us for many years. This has enabled us to fit the unit outside the New Library in the Town Centre. Our hope is that the need never arises for it to be used but it is reassuring to know that it is there if needed..

Children’s Ward at East Surrey Hospital.
It was noticed that all the televisions in the Children’s ward were not working and it was found that that they had been condemned on safety grounds.
We could not let those Children lie in bed without entertainment and so we approached a local Electrical Retailer, Reigate Electrical to see if they would assist us in the purchase of ten televisions. They were able to offer a good price and so they were purchased and donated to the Hospital.
They have now all been installed and are keeping the Children amused.

£5,000 Donation to The Lucy Rayner Foundation
The proceeds of this years skittles tournament were donated to this local charity which was started by the parents of Lucy who, having had undiagnosed mental problems, committed suicide when aged 22. The Charity was set up in memory of Lucy, and aims to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of depression in young adults. This is done through education and campaigning, to facilitate change in the way mental health is perceived by society, and to help prevent young people committing suicide. Typical examples of the work undertaken are, free counselling on a one to one basis in schools, a monthly support group for people caring for a family member or friend who has mental health problems or Just Talk coffee mornings for those suffering a mental health problem.
