Greatwood fundraising goes international with a golf event in Dubai

 

Helen Yeadon receives the cheque from Dick FearHelen Yeadon receives the cheque from Dick FearMarlborough's Greatwood charity has benefited to the tune of £18,500 from a unique fundraising event in Dubai.

Dick Fear, head outrider at the Dubai Racing Club in Meydan, organised a charity golf day attended by, among others, former World Number 1 and Ryder Cup golfer Lee Westwood and European Tour Professional Oliver Fisher.

As Fear explained: “Mr Al Basti is a big supporter of Greatwood and I wanted to give something back to him for all his support that he does for everyone here in Dubai. He is a very extraordinary man with his generosity."

"When I looked at Greatwood charity’s website, the work that they do touched me in such a way that I just wanted to be a part of it. So through horses and golf it seemed like a great idea to raise money for a worthy charity.”
 
Co-Founder and Managing Director of Greatwood Charity, Helen Yeadon was at the golf event and received the cheque - for AED98,395 in the local currency:  “I would like to thank Dick for the great honour of nominating Greatwood. It was a fabulous evening, with an extraordinary sum of money raised. "

"This money will help educate no less than 18 young people.  Dick, you truly have changed lives and created futures.”

Greatwood looks after retired racehorses and uses them to help children who are disadvantaged or have learning difficulties - and to train them in horse care skills.
