Many of the supporters and sponsors of Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials have kindly donated money can’t buy packages which Event Mobility, Badminton’s official 2017 event charity auctioned off immediately from 8th – 15th May 2017.
Prizes included a stable tour at 2018’s Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials, signed Merchandise from this year’s winner Andrew Nicholson plus a number of other unique lots.
All funds raised by Event Mobility at Badminton will go towards the charity’s project ‘Project 18’ which was launched at Badminton to raise money for an 18 ton lorry to help them to help more people at more events. As a charity one of the key issues they face every day is how to minimise the cost of their operation so it does not impact on their ability to provide their service wherever it is required.
They currently have a 7.5 ton lorry which allows them to transport up to 30 scooters and manual wheelchairs to and from shows nationwide themselves. Before, their only option was to employ a transport company at a considerable cost. This is known as ‘Project 18’ and the charity are hoping to raise £45,000 to enable this.
The Project 18 Online Silent Auction is now closed (Monday 15 May 10pm) and will run for 7 days.
