Hack­ers get to­gether for dis­abled boy

Your Horse (UK) - - News & Views -

Horse rid­ers are lend­ing their sup­port to a three-year-old boy who suf­fers from se­vere men­tal and phys­i­cal dis­abil­i­ties. A spon­sored ride in Northamp­ton­shire on Satur­day, 14 July will see rid­ers and their horses hack through Park Farm Eques­trian & Chasers to raise money for young Harry Charlesworth. Harry suf­fered strokes be­fore he was born and is se­verely hand­i­capped. He is tube fed, blind, non-verbal and has quad­ri­plegic cere­bral palsy. This means he’s un­able to use his limbs and has to sleep with an oxy­gen tank. The money raised by the ride will go to­wards Harry’s on­go­ing care, in­clud­ing spe­cial­ist equip­ment and ex­ten­sive phys­io­ther­apy. It has been or­gan­ised by The Help­ing Harry Trust, which was launched in Septem­ber 2016 to sup­port Harry and his fam­ily. Hay­ley Charlesworth, Harry’s mum, said: “Last year, it was amaz­ing to see the lo­cal horse-lov­ing com­mu­nity come to­gether to raise money for my son. July’s event prom­ises to be even big­ger and we can’t wait to see ev­ery­one in ac­tion.” Visit the­help­ing­har­ry­trust.com.
