At the meet on Saturday 14th January 2023 in Badminton, the Beaufort Hunt Supporters Club donated £500 to the Youth Adventure Trust, a local charity which works with children aged between 11 and 16 and uses outdoor activities as a platform for them to build resilience, develop confidence and learn skills to last a lifetime.
A donation of £500 was also given to Julia’s House, an award winning Children’s Hospice in Dorset and Wiltshire, which provides practical and emotional support for families caring for a child with life threatening or life limiting conditions. Richard Meek braved the wet conditions to accept the cheque on behalf of Julia’s House.
Natalie Levin, Philanthropy Manager at the Youth Adventure Trust, who was also presented with the cheque for £500 said “The generous gift from the Beaufort Hunt Supporters Club will have an impact on the young people we support. This money will fund one young person’s place at camp over the summer and enable them to try activities such as climbing, caving and kayaking, learning important skills such as teamwork and communication, and building the confidence to make positive decisions. Thank you to the Beaufort Hunt Supporters Club for supporting us, this donation is very much appreciated”.
Making the cheque presentations were the Horse Show organisers Jill Brack and Jenny Minney, who run the incredibly successful show over the summer and are always pleased to support local charities with some of the funds raised. Jill Brack said “The Summer Horse Show, run for the Beaufort Hunt Supporters Club, is a great day within the local community and we are extremely proud to to support important local charities”.
