Axholme Bridleways Association near Scunthorpe was founded in September 2012 and on 26 May 2013 ran their first sponsored ride.
Wanting to help people in the local area, they decided to donate 50% of the money raised to a local charity, and chose Lindsey Lodge Hospice in Scunthorpe.
It was a sad and ironic coincidence that a few months after choosing Lindsey Lodge, one of their members passed away there. The sponsored ride raised a total of £892, half of which was donated to Lindsey Lodge Hospice in Scunthorpe in memory of their late member Julia Gleadell.
Their next event will be a fun day to mark the first anniversary of the group and will be held on 22 September at Skyers Farm Riding School and Livery Yard.
