Connor Beasley leaves hospital

 21 Jul 2015

Connor Beasley left the Royal Stoke University hospital where he has been since 7 July following his horrific accident at Wolverhampton. Returning to his home in County Durham Beasley commented  "I've got a neck and back brace on for another 12 weeks which will just support me throughout and then we'll keep kicking and see how things go from there. I'll keep looking forward now and aiming high. There's been a lot of support from jockeys, trainers and owners and I can't appreciate that enough. What they're doing for me is unbelievable. Looking to the future, Beasley added: "Hopefully I'll be down at Jack Berry House in a couple of weeks' time getting my bearings and then I'll be able to work there and get going properly. It's a great thing to have."

Founded in 1964 following the devastating accidents to Tim Brookshaw, and then Paddy Farrell in the 1964 Grand National, the Injured Jockeys Fund has since spent over £18m in helping over 1000 jockeys whose injuries have forced some of them to give up riding.
 

Jack Berry House gets Royal approval

HRH The Princess Royal was full of enthusiasm seeing the facilities at Jack Berry House. After unveiling the bronze statue of Jack Berry during an ill timed down pour, the ceremony continued inside where she also revealed the opening plaque. Introduced by IJF President John Francome and HRH The Princess Royal addressed the guests saying "I am delighted to be here and to have seen it right the way through from the early days. I wish I could have ridden like Johnny Francome and I wish I could raise money like Jack Berry. This is a remarkable achievement and it really does deserve your name bricked in, which is entirely appropriate on the basis of the way you managed to raise all that money."
