£1100 Donation Received from Katie Morgan’s Summer Ball

In January 2012 , a local rider and SAFE member Katie Morgan tragically lost her life to Meningitis at only 18 years of age. Katie loved horses as well as other animals and often enjoyed hacking around the bridlepaths in the Lisvane and Rudry areas on her beloved horse Gunner.

On 21 June 2013 Katie’s family organised a ball at the New Country House Hotel in memory of Katie, proceeds from the event being donated to the Meningitis Trust and SAFE. The ball was a tremendous success with 190 people attending and was a fitting tribute to Katie.

Following the Ball the Morgan family presented SAFE with a cheque donation to their work of an amazing £1100. We have never had a single donation which has come near to this and are very grateful to her family.

If If   If  you  ride in the Lisvane area and have an idea for how off road riding could be improved and are willing to be involved in helping drive your idea forward  please let us know.  In line with the Morgan family’s wishes we have earmarked  these these funds for a project in the area Katie used to ride.
