Nail your colours
for a worthy cause

THE DBS sale ring will play host to a charity auction of eight sets of cherished colours following the sale of the final yearling, lot 250, on Tuesday.

The colours will be sold in aid of the T4Toby Trust, which was set up to help fund critical treatment required for ten-year-old Toby Cunliffe, who was diagnosed with a Type 4brain tumour earlier this year.

One of the most effective treatments for this type of tumour is Proton Therapy. However, there are unfortunately very few treatment centres capable of treating Toby and none are in the UK.

As a result, Toby needs to travel to Boston to receive the treatment and to make that happen, the trust are working tirelessly to raise £180,000.

The colours have been donated by Allertons and a list of those on offer,on which the BHA have waived all registration fees for a year, can be found at
