A warm welcome...
Affiliated to British Eventing and hosted at Stratford Hills Cross Country and Livery, Hills Farm in Stratford St Mary near the historic town of Colchester in Essex, by kind permission of Mr and Mrs Ivan Lockett. SHHT is now in its 18th year and is delighted to be able to continue running to raise money for local charities.
2021 will see Stratford Hills Horse Trials support the Charlie Watkins Foundation. The foundation was set up in 2017 to encourage vulnerable young people to talk.
Charlie Watkins was just 22 when he took is own life in March 2017. Sadly, Charlie never recovered from the tragic loss of his mother when he was 9 years old. Charlie is one of the many examples of young people who suffer from mental health issues. The Charlie Watkins Foundation aims to raise funds to support young people struggling with mental health issues, and encourages them to talk and remove the stigma of mental health.
The foundation was set up by Harry Watkins, Charlie's twin brother, in September 2017. The aim is to accelerate the provision of counselling for young people and to support the lobbying for support at both regional and national level.
