The organiser of a garden party which raised over £400 for a ex-racehorse rehabilitation centre has thanked all those who supported the event.

Pru Tomes held a garden party at her home on Cherry Tree Lane in Beverley in a bid to raise funds for New Beginnings, an ex-racehorse rehabilitation centre.

The event, which saw revellers enjoy live music and home-made cakes, raised £442 for the charity.

Pru said: “A big thankyou to all those who contributed to the very, very successful garden party on 3 August in aid of New Beginnings.

“To the musicians to the helpers to the cake makers et cetera et cetera, thank you.”

New Beginnings is a Community Interest Company that works in a similar way to a charitable organisation.

The primary aim of ‘New Beginnings’ is to provide a safe and supportive environment for ex-racehorses to be rehabilitated and re-homed after they have retired from racing.

The company is run by directors Kevin Atkinson and Pam Hollingworth who are passionate about thoroughbreds and their welfare.

The pair have been involved with horses for over 40 years and we now have 15 horses in our care at our New Beginnings yard.
