HORSEPOWER 2017 (Charity Registration No. SCO46720) have successfully completed their seventh annual fundraising tour and this time their chosen route took them through Eastern Europe.

During July an amazing team of vets have racked up some hugely impressive statistics over a fortnight:

  • 14 bikers involved in the tour
  • NO Damaged bikers
  • 4 Dropped bikes: thankfully nothing damaged other than pride!
  • 3293 Total miles covered
  • 11 countries visited
  • 10 days of CPD presented

And finally… the running total of funds raised currently stands at more than £50,000.

HEROS Charity is delighted to be one of the beneficiaries this year – along with The Gambia Horse & Donkey Trust and St Ethelberts Child & Refuge Centre.

Gratitude is extended to all of the sponsors who have supported the 2017 tour and we are forever indebted to each and every one of the vets who selflessly and tirelessly work in their hard-earned time off to raise funds for those less fortunate.

Vets with Horsepower report that the 2018 tour is already being planned!

HEROS Charity retrain and rehome ex-racehorses when their racing days are over. We work with the horses and retrain them ready for their new life after racing. Donations are such an important resource, enabling us to care for the horses and provide them with the background they will need before they go to a new home. Logistically we struggle as we often need to collect horses to come into the charity and deliver them to new homes to begin their new life. Horses also often need to be transported to vets, and other events we hold to showcase what we do. It is for these reasons that the donation being made to HEROS Charity by Vets with Horsepower will be used as an initial contribution towards a new “fully-branded” HEROS Horsebox.  We look forward to adding the “Vets with Horsepower”  logo on the box to help spread the word of their fabulous fundraising tours.
