Robbie Walsh Riding His Horse In Contact Silks

We are thrilled to announce that jockey Robbie Walsh is fundraising for Contact over the next two years to help raise awareness and vital funds to continue our work supporting thousands of families with disabled children across the UK.

Robbie will be riding in Contact branded silks and taking part in a number of fundraising activities.

Robbie is starting his fundraising journey with us on 29 September by taking part in a group skydive along with his trainer, Ian Williams and several other friends from Dominion Stables. The group hopes to raise an amazing £10,000 to support our work, and we wish them the best of luck in their fantastic adventure!

Robbie heard about Contact through his family's experience of caring for his young son Leighton, who has an extremely rare medical condition called Congenital Hyperinsulinism. As a result, Robbie understands how important it is for families to get support from charities like Contact. This inspired him to get involved and support the work we do.

If you would like to help Robbie achieve his fundraising target for us, please visit his JustGiving Page.

Best of luck to Robbie and the team!
