Tributes Flood Social Media for Philippa Humphreys


Tributes Flood Social Media for Philippa Humphreys

Philippa Humphreys fund update and new #memories4millie launched

Tributes have been flooding social media from members of the equestrian world, to offer their heartfelt condolences to Philippa’s family and friends. The fund set up by Jeanie Morris, in Philippa’s honour, to ensure that her daughter Millie has access to the best education possible, has now reached $42,920 (£29,651). There have been a total of 372 kind donors so far. To raise such a large number in such a short amount of time is a true testament to human kindness and the equestrian communities ability to pull together and support others.

The Nurse who administered CPR to Philippa in an effort to save her life, has been identified, and has posted on her Facebook page her condolences: I tried so very hard to save this rider and mother. In 18 years of emergency room and oncology experience, I could not save her even being there right when it happened. God bless the family. My prayers are with all of the family and friends.”

Philippa’s family and close friends are asking members of the public to use the hash tag #memories4millie to share a memory or something that may have inspired them about Philippa Humphreys. All the memories will then be compiled into a book, to share with her daughter when she is older. Hopefully Millie will then discover how truly amazing her mother was and how many lives she touched. You too can include a picture.

Liz Millikin is also asking for those who knew Philippa Humphreys well, to write a letter to Millie, describing how they knew her mum and how she impacted on their lives. This touching tribute and memory is so Millie has some memory to hold onto. All letters can be sent to Liz Millikin, PO Box 282, Millwood, VA 22646.


Donations are being accepted via the link below. The general public are being asked to donate whatever they can in memory of an ‘amazing’ fellow member of our equestrian sport:
