Former Champion Apprentice Bryn Crossley who rode more than 200 winners on the flat in UK, recently died at the age of 59. His wife Patsy had died just 2 years previously. They have left 5 dogs and 2 cats who have been under the care of Hondón Valley Animal Rescue.
Bryn had an illustrious career, he was extremely stylish and very strong in the saddle, he was a Willie Carson type jockey. Crossley rode his final winner on Minatina at Newbury in Oct 1993 and retired with 222 victories to his name and then took up a job riding for the Godolphin. Due to problems in the last few years, Bryn died destitute.
Patsy´s sister Sue Cambridge, who runs Everybodys Dance Fitness Hair, Beauty and Nails Centre, has offered to host a benefit Fashion Show in memory of Bryn and Patsy giving the opportunity to raise much needed funds for the HOVAR Charity.
She has got together some volunteer models who will have hair and make up done by Louis. The dogs and cats have been offered homes in UK but this will be a huge cost to the Charity. Some money was raised at Bryn’s Memorial but more will be required to cover all the costs.
HOVAR have been helping abused and abandoned animals for over 10 years and is a fully legal and registered charity in Spain. They have a Charity Shop located in Calle Nuevo , Hondón de las Nieves.
Please come along to Everybodys Dance and Fitness Centre, Urban de Dehesa, Campoamor, opposite main car park at the beach area to support the Fashion Show on Sunday 15th April at 1700 hrs. Tea, coffee and soft drinks will be available and there will be a raffle. Entrance is free.
