Tim Stockdale (pictured) will be giving a lecture demonstration at Merrist Wood near Guildford in Surrey next month, with all proceeds going towards helping paralysed event rider Claire Lomas.

Selina Farmer, a close friend of Claire’s, has organised the lecture demo on Tuesday 23 October to raise money to help with Claire’s recovery. The 27-year-old was paralysed when she collided with a tree at Osberton Horse Trials in May.

Tickets are £20 or £25 on the door subject to availability. To order please send a cheque, payable to “Claire Lomas Walk Campaign”, and a stamped addressed envelope for ticket return, to Selena Farmer, Lane End, Frensham, Farnham, Surrey GU10 3DT. Donations can be sent to the same address.
