Woodland Venture - Plant a Tree with Henrietta Knight

Woodland Venture - Plant a Tree with Henrietta Knight

by IJF |  15 Nov 2019

Legendary trainer, Henrietta Knight (pictured) plants a tree as part of a Christmas campaign to support the Injured Jockeys Fund.  The campaign is named after 'Woodland Venture' the horse that Henrietta’s late husband Terry Biddlecombe famously rode to victory in the 1967 Cheltenham Gold Cup.

Members of the public can pay £20 to have a tree planted with either theirs or a loved ones name on it. For each £20 donated, the IJF will plant a tree at 'Farringdon Folly' in Oxfordshire, close to the IJF's first Rehabilitation & Fitness Centre, Oaksey House and then once Farringdon Folly has been filled, at other locations around the country. 

Henrietta Knight says: “This is such a lovely initiative. Not only does it provide a lovely Christmas gift, but supports the IJF and the fantastic work it does, plus helps support the environment too.
