Driving funds towards Ilkley Stroke Club
9:00am Friday 15th March 2013 in News
The organiser of Ilkley Stroke Club is to take part in a sponsored carriage drive on April 7 in aid of The Stroke Association.
Joan Lawrence, who has run the Ilkley club for the last 12 years, has three small driving ponies and plans to take a pair of them, Shetland pont Cassie and Welsh pony Bob, for a 14 kilometre drive at Escrick Park, near York, with the regional driving trails group annual sponsored drive.
Although it is a considerable distance for such small ponies, Mrs Lawrence is confident they will be able to complete the course.
She said: “The fact I am able to drive out with my ponies in support of The Stroke Association that will benefit my many friends in Ilkley Stroke Club makes it a very special event for me.
“I really enjoy the month club meetings that are held at the Clarke Foley Centre. The members are outward looking and have a good sense of humour, which makes for very happy afternoons,” she added.
