HEROS Charity Golf Day 2018

Thursday 30 August 2018

#HEROSgolf 2018

From furlong to fairway...

Make up a team of four and join HEROS Charity patrons and former jockeys Mick Fitzgerald, John Francome, Richard Hughes and John Reid at West Berkshire Golf Course to have fun on the fairways and raise funds for retraining and rehoming ex-racehorses.

All four former jockeys are making the most of their own #NewLifeAfterRacing and understand that the same is true of ex-racehorses as it is for former jockeys.

DATE: Thursday 30th August, 2018

TIME: Registration at 9.30am – further details to be confirmed but there will be a drinks reception and buffet after play followed by auction and prize-giving

COURSE: The West Berkshire GC, Chaddleworth, Newbury, Berkshire, RG20 7DU, T: 01488 638574, E: info@thewbgc.co.uk

COSTS: to be confirmed, but wil include refreshments • proceeds are donated to HEROS Charity to directly support the welfare, retraining and rehoming of ex-racehorses and educational programmes to support the racing industry’s workforce.

BOOKING: please call the HEROS Charity office on 01488 638820 or email info@heroscharity.org at any time to reserve a place for your team. Plenty of time to get some practice in.

Each horse coming to HEROS Charity has individual needs and they take different periods of time to reach their new potential. Equestrian welfare is a 24/7 year-round commitment so fundraising and the support of connections and the general public is vital to successfully finding new homes and careers for Thoroughbreds as they leave the racing industry.
