When Santa & his Elf diversified…..#LukeBell #AirAmbulance
Many of you will know the gratitude we have for the Air Ambulance when they saved Henry’s life following a serious fall at Hexham in October 2016.
He fell from Old Storm at the second fence of a two-and-a-half-mile handicap chase and racing was delayed by almost two hours as the course medical team worked with North East Ambulance Service crew members, and medics from the Great North Air Ambulance, to treat him at the scene.
“I have no doubt whatsoever that the combined actions of the medical personnel on duty that day saved my life, and for that I (and my family) will be eternally grateful. As a jockey, I love what I do and I take it for granted that I will return home at the end of a day’s work, as do my colleagues.
“It takes something like this to fully appreciate the support that allows us to be as safe as possible whilst doing our job.”
Ant now he gets to make videos like this!!
Merry Christmas One & All x
Update…..This video was also used as a fund raiser for Luke Bell, a young boy who was battling cancer. As a very sad post script to this story, we have just found out Luke lost that battle today and has passed away…..On behalf of all the lads in the weighing room they will continue to raise money in his memory, and try to raise awareness for his cause.
Please spare a thought for all the terminally ill children this Christmas.
