The idea to start the charity was Sandy Vandenberghe’s (one of the Trustees).  She cared for her uncle David Laity during his fight against cancer.  David was a very much loved Cornishman who always thought of others before himself and was a great supporter of charities.  Many of the Trustees have been affected by the death of someone close to them due to cancer and we feel that it is the children, who haven’t had much of a start in life who we really wanted to support and that Sandy’s uncle David would have liked this too.

Antics, a skewbald (brown and white) stallion would not have been here today had it not been for Sandy and Ian Vandenberghe who saved his mother ‘Antigony’ from certain death.


As Antics came into the world as a ‘gift’ (and he’s very handsome!) Sandy felt that he would have a superb role in life by helping raise money for children.  Horses are often appealing to children and if a child wishes to meet him, we would make you very welcomed.  If it is not feasible to visit, we can always send pictures of him to help cheer a child up.
