Sponsored walk planned to raise money for injured jockey Graham Lee

Graham Lee.

A sponsored walk will take place next month to raise money for injured jockey Graham Lee.

Money raised from the walk at Middleham will go to the Injured Jockeys Fund.

It will be used to help to pay for the adaptions needed for the jockey to return to his home in Bedale.

The Grand National winning jockey Graham Lee suffered a career ending fall in November last year at Newcastle Racecourse.

He is currently in the spinal unit at James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough.

The walk will take place on Sunday, April 14 taking in the countryside over the Middleham gallops.

It will be followed by an auction of promises and raffle at the Saddle Room at Tupgill Park.

The walk has been sponsored by North Residential Estate Agents in Northallerton and refreshments afterwards are being provided by the Saddle Room.
