£1600 raised for The British Heart Foundation

Harrier recently helped the Alfreton & Ripley British Heart Foundation Fundraising Group with their Flat Cap & Ferrets event by sponsoring one of the races, enabling the money raised on the night to directly benefit the British Heart Foundation. There were several other businesses sponsoring the races and event including Go-Pro Services, Vines Legal, David Coleman & Co Ltd and Total Integrated Solutions Ltd.

The evening included a delicious pie and peas supper, five ferret racing heats followed by the grand final. Our Business Manager, Helen, competed as a ferret jockey however on the night Alan the ferret was not on top form and the Harrier dream team didn’t get a spot in the grand final! Barclays Bank organised the raffle and kindly doubled the amount raised on the night. Overall the event raised a whopping £1600.50 for the British Heart Foundation.

Managing Director, Andy, is proud to support local fundraising groups ‘The British Heart Foundation is a charity close to my heart having had some close friends affected by heart conditions and Harrier was happy to sponsor a race and support the Alfreton & Ripley British Heart Foundation Fundraising Group. We had a great time on the night and met lots of fantastic British Heart Foundation supporters.’
