Celebrated jump jockeyto host GIMA Charity Golf and Activity Day Dinner

This year’s GIMA Charity Golf and Activity Day dinner will be hosted by Richard Pitman.

Pitman, a retired jump jockey, rode 470 winners in his career including Lanzarote in the 1974 Champion Hurdle and 4000 losers, which includes Crisp in the 1973 Grand National when he was pipped to the post by the legendary Red Rum.

He joined the BBC TV racing team in 1976, and since then has become an author, he has written a total of twelve books, seven of which are based on racing.

He was more recently in the press for donating a kidney to a complete stranger and now supports kidney research charities around the UK.

The Charity Dinner will take place on the evening of 8th June at Telford Hotel and Golf Resort following the annual golf day and this year’s inaugural Kwik Cricket and Laser Shooting Challenge.

During the dinner a charity auction and raffle will take place raising money for GIMA’s two chosen charities; Greenfingers, a small national charity that creates gardens in children’s hospices and St. Richard’s Hospice in Worcester.
