Hayley Turner Racing History Donation

5th December, 2011

At the beginning of July, Hayley Turner became the first female jockey to win a Group One race outright at the Darley July Cup at Newmarket. She very kindly donated a signed display photo of the racing colours she wore to her historic victory to Headway Cambridgeshire. She invited Headway to auction this item of horse racing memorabilia to raise funds for the charitable work we carry out in support of brain injured adults, their families and carers. Congratulations to the lucky highest bidder who donated £266 to own this souvenir and thanks to Hayley for donating it.

The Hospital Brain Injury Co-ordinator became someone who absolutely understood how I felt, I didn’t need to explain. I could talk about my fears and worries. She was such a great support through the difficult days, but could also celebrate the small step successes, which was important to me.
