Our Patrons and Trustees

 

Countess of Halifax - Patron

‘As a breeder of thoroughbreds and an owner of racehorses I am proud to show my commitment and support by being a Patron of New Beginnings.

As a horsewoman myself, I can fully endorse the care and empathy show to these magnificent horses, who deserve the chance of a secure and fulfilling life following racing. I acknowledge the dedication, passion and commitment shown by Pam and Kevin to the welfare of all the horses in their care and their support for the racing industry.’

 

Graham Oragne - Trustee

'As a proud Yorkshireman, I'm honoured to be a trustee of New Beginnings. I worked in a professional capacity for the Yorkshire racecourses for over 32 years, so I know how important racing is to the county and how the county is important to racing!

By being a trustee of New Beginnings, I'm continuing my association with racehorses, albeit in a different capacity. These are exciting times for New Beginnings, and  I'm delighted to be part of a great team. It's a wonderful charity which represents a very important aspect of the racing industry, which appeals to both racegoers and the public as a whole'.

 

Michael Shinners - Trustee

'In my many years of working within the industry, most recently as Horse Racing PR Manager for Sky Bet I have become acutely aware of the need to make provisions for horses in their retirement. I was fortunate to visit New Beginnings four years ago and was immediately impressed by the work they do.  They prepare horses for the next stages of their lives in a friendly and professional manner. I’m proud to be associated with them as a trustee of the charity as they continue their invaluable work and service to the sport'.
