Polo players pool pounds

HORSEPLAY helped collect in the cash for a good cause, as a polo match was organised in aid of Breast Cancer Research.

The White Rose Polo Club at North Cliffe near Market Weighton got together three teams for the match which was eventually won by Team Tottie, which included team members Anna Ward, Gillian Saville, Joan Gough and Julie Axup.

But with the aim of the day to make money for the charity, the players sported pink, the Breast Cancer Research official colour, and there was a raffle and a best decorated cake competition won by Sarah Gough - all of which helped raise the total to £300.

Hedley Aylott, Chairman of White Rose Polo Club said: “It was fantastic to see the whole club join together again this year, to support such a worthwhile charity and we look forward to continuing what has now become an annual event on the polo calendar”.

The prize for Most Valuable Player went to Anna Ward and Best Playing Pony was awarded to Bonita, owned and ridden by Lesley Jackson.

White Rose Polo Club was founded by Hedley Aylott, the owner of Townend Farm, and set up by its members in early 2007.
