Liverpool International Horse Show Donate to Tim Stockdale Foundation
The Tim Stockdale Foundation has received a donation from the Liverpool International Horse Show (LIHS) on behalf of all of those who took part in the ‘Text to Win’ competition during the 2018 show.
LIHS have confirmed the total donation of £1,500 has been made. Said Tim Stockdale’s wife Laura:
We are so grateful to the Liverpool International Horse Show audience for donating so generously to the Tim Stockdale Foundation.”
The foundation, which was set up in memory of British Showjumping star Tim Stockdale, aims to raise funds to provide improved opportunities in sports, with a focus on emerging young talent.
Added Liverpool International Horse Show, President Nina Barbour:
Tim Stockdale brought so much to the sport of showjumping and we are delighted to boost the funds for the foundation. Thank you to everyone for giving to this great cause.”
The foundation’s funds raised so far have already been used to help young Harry Banks a 10-year-old bubbly, smiley, very cheeky, but completely adorable boy who has been battling Neuroblastoma, a very rare and aggressive children’s cancer.
Tim represented Team GB at the Beijing Olympics in 2008, narrowly missing out on a medal by finishing fourth in the team event.
He rode for GB more than 50 times in the Nations Cup, and also competed in the World Equestrian Games in 2002 and the European Championships in 2009.
This year’s Liverpool International Horse Show will see a host of leading names in action from December 28 to 31, 2019 at The M&S Bank Arena on Liverpool’s iconic waterfront. For further information visit www.liverpoolhorseshow.com
