AN EVESHAM woman who lost her father and grandfather to cancer is looking to give something back by organising a charity horse ride.

Mel Dean from South Littleton, who has been horse riding for more than 40 years, has teamed up with friend Elizabeth Powell to organise the ride which will raise vital funds for Cancer Research UK.

The event will take place next Sunday (May 27) between 9.30am and 1.30pm with all types of horses and riders being allowed to enter.

The ten mile ride will start and finish at Abberton Road at Radford Auto Grass Track near Inkberrow with free refreshments provided throughout.

Mel told the Observer: "Losing my Dad and Grandad to cancer was a very difficult especially losing them quite close together.

"To have to go through cancer as a sufferer or from a loved one's experience is not nice and the more funds we can raise the better.

"Helping organise event with Elizabeth is my way of trying to give something back and doing something to help cancer sufferers. Hopefully the weather will be good and we can raise lots of money," she added.

The event costs £18 to enter for adults and £12 for children aged under 14 with family rates being negotiable.

Anyone who wants to take part or would like more information should call Elizabeth Powell on 07825 665645.
