Hackers get together for disabled boy
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.
