My name is Laura Stockdale and my Husband Tim died last November, it was just a month after being diagnosed with stomach cancer. It was a huge loss to our family and to the showjumping world. Tim was a superb ambassador for his sport, not just as a rider but as a respected trainer and broadcaster too. He had many great moments during his showjumping career, but one of his proudest was winning the Longines King George V Gold Cup at Hickstead in 2010, riding Fresh Direct Kalico Bay.
In his honour, The Bunn Family, have offered the use of their amazing showground to raise money to help young people in sport, we would like to invite, persuade or blackmail you into running, walking or shuffle half a mile in aid of The Tim Stockdale Foundation at the Longines Royal International Horse Show, Hickstead, on Saturday 27th July 2019 at 6.00pm.
Each team of 10 must guarantee to raise a minimum of £2,500 (£250 per participant). One lap on the concrete road around the International Arena (half a mile) must be completed in relay format by each team member. 10 laps for each team.
My friends, family and British Showjumping are showing support by agreeing to make up Stockdale teams and we will endeavour to jog, walk or crawl our laps around the Hickstead arena. We are funding raising collectively.
My teams are growing and so far include
Joseph Stockdale, Mark Stockdale, Lisa Stockdale, Ellie Stockdale, Ivan Stockdale, Rosie Williamson, Lexii Bish-Jones, Amanda Bish-Jones, Esme Bayes, Chloe Beauchamp,, Andrea Booth, Leah Booth, Charlotte Attwell, Ruby Fryer, Claire Fry, Sue Corrigan, Sue-Anna Cunningham, Katy Treharne, Di Lampard, Gordon and Sue Hall, Elle Hall, Pete Hurley,
We have plenty of space if you would like to be part of our family teams. Message me on firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to join us.
