Today, Michelle Girling, founder of Tuffa Footwear Ltd, presented Mark Loades, Head of Fundraising for Racing Welfare with a cheque for £1000.
Over the year, “Tuffa Racing For Charity”, pledged to make a donation of £5 per pair from racing boots purchased either through their website or from Tuffa stockists.
Michelle Girling said “Each time a customer sent through a receipt of their purchase, a £5 donation was put into the pot. At the end of the year Tuffa has rounded up the total and we are pleased to make this donation of £1000. It’s been a pleasure working with the Racing Welfare team who provide such excellent support for racing staff around the country. 2018 was our second year working with racing industry charities; our first year was with The Bob Champion Cancer Trust and throughout 2019 we are working with The Injured Jockeys Fund.”
Mark Loades said “On behalf of everyone here at Racing Welfare, we would like to thank Michelle and the whole team at Tuffa for all of their kind and generous donation. Their donation of £1,000 is hugely appreciated and will go towards funding our projects to assist racing’s people in their working and everyday lives.”
