Lion Vice President Drew Presenting Cheque to Richard Johnson on behalf of the Injured Jockeys Fund

Lovely day at the Races last Saturday! Lion Vice President Drew was there (with a couple of hangers on) to present a cheque to the Injured Jockeys Fund. Richard Johnson, soon to become Champion Jockey, accepted the cheque on behalf of the charity.

For the past 30 odd years, Newbury Racecourse has been supporting Newbury Lions Club to raise much-needed funds by hosting our annual Fireworks Display. Recognising that this area has a lot of people involved in horse racing and that jockeys can and do sustain life-changing injuries as a result of racing accidents, the Lions Club decided to make a significant contribution to the charity's funds. This will ensure that those whose careers are cut short have the benefit of support when they need it most.
