St Michael’s Hospice Community Fundraiser Hannah Hildreth says the St Michael’s Hospice Riding Club is a group of dedicated volunteers who tirelessly raise funds for the hospice every year. ““We are very grateful for the continued support and hard work of the Riding Club through their Annual Show,” she said. “Their contribution is greatly appreciated and valued by the Hospice. We thank them for holding their Horse show again this year.
