Racehorse welfare charity Greatwood opens its doors

  • Racehorse welfare charity Greatwood, based just outside Marlborough, Wilts, is opening its gates to the public for an open day on Sunday 5 June.

    At the family themed day, visitors will be able to find out more about Greatwood’s work, and meet the residents of the charity.

    The charity’s Horse Power educational programme uses former racehorses to interact with children with special educational needs in a unique programme.

    Attending the day will be supermodel and Greatwood patron Jodie Kidd.

    She said: “The open day is an opportunity for the public to find out more about the amazing work of Greatwood, including the Horse Power programme and the rehabilitation and re-homing of former racehorses, while raising funds for a fantastic cause.”

    A very special guest for the younger visitors, Peppa Pig, will also be appearing at various intervals throughout the day with an opportunity to have photos taken with this hugely popular character.

    And other attractions include a display by eventer Andrew Hoy, a parade of greyhounds from the West of England Greyhound Rescue Centre and shopping galore.

    Gates open from 11am
and entry is £10 per car.
