Irish Injured Jockeys would like to thank all who contributed to the funds raised from presentations during the Punchestown Festival. The Mobile unit attended the festival every day and was very popular among the racegoers with jockeys stopping by to sign autographs and stand in for photos, we would like to thank all our volunteers who took the time to help out and all who purchased merchandise. We would like to express our sincere thanks and our appreciation to Pat Healy, Richie Galway and the team at Punchestown racecourse, for the support and co-operation with all our activities and particularly also for accommodating our mobile unit for the week.
The most recent companies to support the charity are Betbright who donated 10k and the Betbright Cup as Ireland where leading trainers at the Cheltenham Festival, Colm Quinn donated 6k from their Cheltenham Preview night, Brian Murphy of Boylesports raised 11k from his charity walk in aid of various charities and Devenish Nutrition donated funds from the Dowth Hall Ball,we are very grateful for the continued support.
