HORSE HEROES: St Albans mayor praises four young charity fundraisers

 Published on: 21st August 2023   |   By: Panayiota Demosthenous   |   Category: Uncategorized

The Mayor of the City and District of St Albans councillor Anthony Rowlands has congratulated four young horse riders on their charity fundraising.

Mayor Rowlands visited Chiswell Green Riding School on Wednesday, July 26, where he congratulated Charlotte Andres, Ruby Nash, Lucy Malin and Eva Wright on completing a marathon 250 jumps with their horses.

The foursome, aged 12 to 15, carried out the challenge in aid of Sarcoidosis UK. The charity raises funds and awareness of the rare condition sarcoidosis, which causes lumps to develop in the body that can prevent organs from working properly.

Mayor Rowlands said: “Their way of raising money by doing 250 jumps was really quite novel and impressive. Lucy’s grandfather, Alan Malin, has the disease and has led the Hertfordshire Support Group which provides advice to people with the disease and campaigns to raise awareness as well as funds to find a cure.

“Congratulations are due to the girls for converting concern into leaping action and Alan for his unstinting work on behalf of others.”
