On 8th November Frances did it in spectacular style! The JustGiving page will be closed in a week but know that the money is coming in to cover £1000. Many thanks to all who helped on this exciting journey. Particular thanks to Frances for her bravery and great generosity of spirit, time and her expenses.
I'm overwhelmed, and relieved that it is all (nearly) over! I keep being given further donations including an anonymous generous sum to take it over £1000 we aimed for. BIG thanks to everyone involved. Barbara xx

1957 –“The enormous black police horse shook his head and tossed me down onto the hard ground. His threatening hairy hooves were pulling painfully at my long blond hair with each clomp, clomp, clomp as I lay between his feet. And then I fainted. I’ve been terrified of horses since” Frances Benton Nov 2012
