Anne Gartside, rep for the South East, is offering a ridden escort service for hacking on the South Downs, with her saint of a horse - they have escorted for pub rides, beach rides, endurance rides - and so far have raised approx. £150.
Sunday 18th December - The Lands End Wobbleberries with the help of Lands End Equestrian centre and their pantomime ponies held a charity event and raffle for our wobbleberry fund.
The Lands End Pub very kindly lent us their car park for the day and gave us a raffle prize along with a lot of other local businesses.
We invited a photographer (Lee Mortlock @ LGM Photographic) along (who gave us these pictures to use free) to take pictures of everyone that wanted to sit in Cinderella's coach and meet her and Elsa. This went down a treat for all the little ones made a lot of children's Christmas's! To top it off we had a lovely unicorn and 2 of Cinderella's ponies to join us for the day which everyone was allowed to meet!
It was a lovely day! Everyone was so supportive! We raised a total of £491.66!!
Wiltshire Wobbleberries - Tracy Brett & Caroline Banks are holding regular events at their yard, starting with cake sales. Loving the Halloween theme!
They also have plans for a Mince Pie & Mulled Wine morning, quiz night, auction and a show
Devon wobbleberry Sue Murphy has come up with the ingenious idea of an achievement jar to mark her journey on the challenge. Every achievement means £1 into the jar, along with a dated note. Should make a great summary this time next year.
As a region, Wiltshire have a tumblers club and an Oh Wow club. Sadly I have already contributed to the tumblers club - aiming for Oh Wow next time!
South East Wobbleberry Hayley Dawson has been very creative, and has set up this collection at Bell Equine - hope there are some generous customers Hayley!
