DE Aston equestrian team raised a whopping £340.18 for team funds when they took part in the Tesco Bag Pack fundraising event.

The event was organised by the vice-captain Effie Warwick John and Tesco Community Champion Jennie Stimson, who agreed to help after being approached by the team.

The girls are working very hard to raise the funds to enable them to compete for De Aston School at regional and national competitions and to provide training for the grass roots riders.

The school is sending several individuals up to Bishop Burton for their next Regional Points League show on December 3.

Team manager Sandra Murphy said: “We are setting our sights on qualifying for the 2012 championships and hope to qualify early in the new year,

“The team would also like to thank our sponsors for their kind donations and continuing support.”
