  • Some of you will be aware that a member of the Southdown Hunt East branch, suffered a horrible accident this summer and sustained a spinal cord injury. She is now in a specialist rehabilitation centre in Chicago and her progress to date has been better than initially expected. Lara’s family are creating a ‘Team Lara’ to raise money for spinal cord research. The Aspire charity run an event where teams club together to swim the distance of the Channel (but in a swimming pool) over the 12 weeks from 8th September. ‘Team Lara’ are expanding it to try and get enough people to swim across the Atlantic. Eridge Pony Club are making a donation to the fund – if you would like to donate individually then you can do so through the ‘Team Lara’ Just Giving page:
    https://www.justgiving.com/TeamLara14/ If you want to be involved in the swim, then email Martin Wright at area11@pcuk.org who will put you in touch with ‘Team Lara’. You should state that you are a member of the Eridge Branch. Basically you can swim any number of lengths in any pool and you just let ‘Team Lara’ know how many and when and they will keep a running total. They need 127,280 lengths (in a 25m pool) to be swum between September 8th and December 1st to get from Shannon in Ireland to Gander in Newfoundland, Canada. Lara’s air ambulance stopped in both of these places to refuel on her way out to Chicago.
