The Worshipful Company of Loriners Pledge Their Support for Racing Welfare’s Life Skills Programme

About The Worshipful Company of Loriners:

A Loriner makes and sells bits, bridles, spurs, stirrups and the minor metal items of a horse’s harness, together with the saddle tree.  Therefore, the connection with horseracing seems a natural fit and Racing Welfare is extremely grateful for the support of The Worshipful Company of Loriners.

Racing Welfare is delighted to announce a new partnership with The Worshipful Company of Loriners, who have kindly offered their support to the Life Skills Programme.  The programme is  funded through Racing Welfare.

Delivered by the British Racing School and the National Horseracing College, the Life Skills Programme aims to help young students learn life skills to better prepare them for their future careers in the racing industry.  It is a core objective of Racing Welfare to ensure all young people have a happy, healthy and well-supported start in racing as they transition to independent living.

Dawn Goodfellow, Racing Welfare’s Chief Executive, said:

The Life Skills Programme is an indispensable part of the training received by the young people entering our industry.  It is wonderful to have the generous support of The Worshipful Company of Loriners for the programme.

Mary-Jane Atkinson, Master Loriner, commented:

The Worshipful Company of Loriners is delighted to be supporting Racing Welfare's Life Skills Programme.  In these difficult times, helping young people fulfil their potential and realise their ambitions has never been more important.  The outcomes of the Life Skills Programme closely align with our charitable objectives and we are delighted to support this thoroughly worthwhile cause.

Grant Harris, Chief Executive of the British Racing School was keen to highlight the importance of the Life Skills Programme:

The Life Skills Programme is an absolutely essential part of the training we provide as it prepares our trainees for independent living by giving them the knowledge, skills and confidence to avoid many of the problems they would otherwise encounter as they move from education to employment.  We are very grateful to Racing Welfare for their continued support of such a vital programme.
