The organisers of Bramham International Horse Trials (3-6 June) have chosen Breakthrough Breast Cancer as the event’s nominated charity this year .

“We wanted to support a charity that many of us can relate to and with nearly 46,000 women and around 300 men diagnosed with breast cancer annually in Britain, Breakthrough was an obvious choice,” said event director Nicholas Pritchard.

“It’s something that has touched so many lives and we want to help them during the event to raise awareness of their valuable work as well as collecting money to help fund their research, campaigns and education. I hope all our visitors will get behind the charity and support them in any way possible during the event.”

Breakthrough Breast Cancer is dedicated to the prevention, treatment and ultimate eradication of breast cancer.

The charity also funds ground-breaking research, campaigns for better services and treatments and raises awareness of breast cancer throughout the UK.

Breakthrough supporter Liz MacPherson’s sister-in-law Judy died of breast cancer in 1993.

“I am so excited that Bramham Horse Trials have decided to support Breakthrough this year, particularly as I have recently moved to Yorkshire and now live within a couple of miles of Bramham Park,” she said. “I am sure that the combination of Breakthrough’s and Bramham Park’s vision, talent and passion will result in a brilliant event in June.”
