Rocking Horse will raise money for children and ponies

THIS stunning wooden rocking horse, worth around £3,000, has become the focus of a Thornbury charity fundraising campaign.

Handmade by Bristol craftsman Dave Parcell, It was donated as a prize to James Brewer who runs the town’s gift shop Celebration Fairs. He came up with the idea of holding a silent auction with a reserve price and would welcome any interest.

James said: “People can come in and look at the horse and tell me how much they’d like to give. Then on the last Sunday of November, I will announce the winner at my Christmas party.’

The wooden rocking horse will also make an appearance at the Almondsbury Pony Show and Gymkhana on July 7 at Washpool Hill in Tockington. Money raised will be shared between the Bristol Children’s Charity, which helps disadvantaged children under 16, and the Almondsbury Pony Show and Gymkhana.
