Britain’s top event riders will be out in force at Pontispool Equine Sports Centre’s second affiliated event of the year on September 9 and 10. The Rotary Club will once again be manning the gates and all proceeds of the £5 per car entrance fee will be donated to the Children’s Hospice South West’s Its Childsplay appeal. Last year’s gate collection was for Shelter Box, and a temporary home was sent to the Congo as a direct result of donations on the gate. In May this year nearly £1500 was raised for Its Childsplay.
Organiser Richard Mitford-Slade said: “People attending the trials have helped raise thousands of pounds over the years which have been donated to various charities. A huge thank you goes to the Taunton Vale Rotarians Rotary Club who provide us with so much help on the gate.
“We are hopeful that our second event will again attract some high profile names in the sport and that people will come along and enjoy some top level competition.”
