Panto Race For Crash Victim Charity 2009: Fundraising Event

Panto race for crash victim charity

A fundraising event in memory of a 20-year-old builder killed in a car crash takes place in Bath this weekend.
Ashley’s mum Clare has organised a pantomime animal race at Bath Racecourse on Sunday in aid of a fund she has set up on behalf of the charity HorseWorld. The race for the Ashley Brixey Fund is being supported by Tim’s Sunny Side Organics, a free range organic egg farm near Devizes, owned by Tim Swinburn. Mr Swinburn was assigned as the family liaison officer when builder Ashley was killed in the crash at Limpley Stoke in October 2004. Clare, who lives near Frome, has dedicated herself to raising £60,000 to help with the charity’s work of rescuing, re-homing and rehabilitating animals. The charity race will be part of the Lansdown course’s summer fete family fun day, with the first horse race at 2.10pm. Clare said she was grateful for Tim’s support: “Tim gave us tremendous support at the time my son was killed and has remained a family friend. He is one of the kindest, caring people I have ever met in my life.”
Tim will also be running as a panto pig, whilst other runners this year include HorseWorld’s managing director Mark Owen, who will be racing in a homemade outfit as Turbo Tortoise, along with Jerry Watkins and last year’s winner Marco Keaton will be running as a double act pantomime horse named Lame and Lazy.
