This summer the Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital Charity had a fantastic time at the Glanusk Estate in Crickhowell. The Estate is owned and run by the Legge-Bourke family who chose the Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital Charity as their Charity of the Year for 2011.
When Serena Legge-Bourke was born in 2008, she had a condition that affects 1 in 20,000 new born babies called laryngomalacia. In Serena’s case it was severe, affecting her eating and breathing. This led her being tube fed for eight months and undergoing three major operations. It is thanks to the doctors, nurses and consultants at the Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital for Wales, that she is a happy and healthy three year old today.
At the Glanusk International Horse Trials and Country Fair Serena’s mother, Iona got back in the saddle after 25 years to undertake a challenge for the Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital Charity. On the final day of this event Iona competed against experienced professionals in dressage, cross country and show jumping.
The following weekend Charlotte Church, Max Boyce and the Aber Valley male voice choir joined us at the Glanusk International Polo match between Wales and Ireland – another fantastic event on the summer calendar.
Finishing the season with a stall at Greenman festival we are pleased to say that thousands of pounds have been raised for the Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital Charity from the tremendous support from the Glanusk Estate.
