HORSE riders and walkers gathered at Bates Farm in Mansfield on Sunday morning to take part in the Alison Turner Memorial charity horse ride.

A total of 74 walkers and 40 riders donned pink outfits as they took part in the event on Sunday, which covered more than six miles around the Teversal area.

The event was organised by Skegby teenager Lauren Turner, with support from her friends and family, in memory of her mum Alison who she lost to breast cancer in January.

The money raised will be used for research in the fight against metastatic breast cancer at Nottingham City Hospital.

Lauren and her horse, Vacant led the ride, which has raised more than £2,000.

Lauren (17) said: “It was really good because it went really well. I was really pleased with how much we raised.”

Lauren was helped by her dad Steve Turner, who brought along two vintage tractors which he had restored with his pal Dave Gradon.
