Simpsons Malt has announced a partnership with Berwick Riders Association for the 407th Riding of the Bounds on May 1.
The sponsorship will go towards riding lessons and horse hire for the three Berwick riders. It is hoped more people, including those who perhaps do not currently ride or own their own horse, will come forward in subsequent years to take part in the event.
Shaun Eltringham, from the Berwick Riders Association, said: “The historical ride around the ancient boundaries of the town is a fantastic draw for locals and tourists alike and we rely on sponsors, Friends of the Bounds and supporters to ensure this traditional event can continue to take place. We are ever grateful to Simpsons Malt for their generous donation.”
Simpsons Malt vice president Richard Simpson added: “We are always keen to get involved in local initiatives especially when they are integral to the history of the area.”
