YMCA Mendip were delighted to attend the Nunney International Horse Trials, as Angela Yeoman’s title sponsor for the event.
Mrs Yeoman has recently become a Patron for YMCA Mendip – who are celebrating their 125th year during 2017, and her support and generosity helped raise £1150 so far over the 3 day event, with donations still coming in.
Held on the grounds of the Southfield Estate, riders from around the world competed in a number of show jumping, dressage and cross country competitions – attracting a number of top names from the sport of international eventing.
As part of the fundraising activities, prize draw tickets were sold, with the lucky winners receiving prizes including a Tekna club saddle, Mulberry credit card wallet and iPhone case, and champagne – the top prize being a week’s holiday for 2 at the beautiful Kingairloch Highland Estate.
YMCA Mendip deliver a range of services, with an emphasis on homelessness, housing, youth work provision and information, advice & guidance. The money raised will help to continue their work in creating supportive, inclusive and energising communities, and supporting young people so they can truly belong, contribute and thrive.
This year, YMCA Mendip are celebrating 125 years of supporting young people in our community. To mark this achievement, a celebratory event is being held at Wells Cathedral on Saturday 21st October at 2pm. Entry to the service is free and open to everyone. If you would like to attend, please send your RSVP to Karen Collins at KCollins@mendipymca.org.uk.
