James Frew Ltd, one of the largest privately owned building service companies in Scotland, kindly donated £100 to the Eglinton Pony Club after securing a spot to compete in the World’s most famous Horse Show.
By winning a 1st place for Senior Mounted Games at the Pony Club Zone Finals in July, the Eglinton Pony Club will now have the chance to compete in a 5-day competition in hope of winning the Prince Philip Cup at the Horse of the Year Show (HOYS) in Birmingham. The small club of 5 hard-working team members will make their way to the NEC Birmingham venue from the 4th to the 8th of October to take part in an incredible competing opportunity.
Georgia Brown, Heather Wylie, Jena Anderson, Eva Meiklem and Abbi Donoghue will be doing extra training for the next 8 weeks in preparation to grab one of the six finalist places. Eglinton Pony Club won The Prince Philip Cup previously in 2005 and thanks to the hard work and commitment of the team members and their trainer, Marie Brown, they will have the opportunity to experience it all again.
William Anderson, who lives in Prestwick South Ayrshire, reached out to James Frew Ltd in hope of a donation to contribute to the place of his daughter, Jena Anderson. Based in the pony club in Fenwick, Jena also received a donation from the company last year.
Roddy Frew, Managing Director, James Frew Ltd said, ‘William Anderson recently retired working as a Housing Inspector within South Ayrshire Council. Over the many years together, a daily working relationship developed between William and James Frew Ltd so we are glad we were able to give something back. After hearing how much our donation helped the Eglinton Pony Club last year, we were very pleased to be able to give the same support this year.’’
James Frew Ltd wish you the very best of luck in the competition next month.
