This year’s White Horse Challenge kicked off in style with a drawing competition held at fellow organiser Rocking Horse Nursery. The children were given the challenge of drawing a picture that best represented the White Horse Challenge and the charity it supports, Wiltshire Air Ambulance.
The children spent a week working on their masterpieces, before lining them up for judging. Partner James Gare from Monahans Chartered Accountants had the difficult job of judging the drawings and picking the winner. After much deliberation, the winner was finally chosen as 5-year-old Felix, whose drawing depicted the Wiltshire Air Ambulance flying through the sky.
Nursery owner Fiona Milner said “We’ve been proud supporters of the White Horse Challenge for four years and it was great being able to launch it this year with a drawing competition at the nursery.
Felix’s drawing of a helicopter was picked out as the best by judges from Monahans and he was delighted to win.”
The winning drawing will have the honour of being used on this year’s White Horse Challenge poster, as well as on other promotional activity.
This year’s White Horse Challenge will be held on 1st & 2nd July, where walkers will once again walk between 7 to 52 miles to raise money for the Wiltshire Air Ambulance. With new routes and the chance to view the stunning Wiltshire countryside, we hope to make this year’s challenge our most successful yet.
Organised by Monahans Chartered Accountants, Rygor vehicle dealership and Rocking Horse Nursery, the White Horse Challenge has so far raised £138,600 for the Wiltshire Air Ambulance.
Zoe Meaden, Business Development Manager at Monahans, who has helped organise and run the event since its formation in 2006 said “We are grateful to everyone who takes part and supports the event. We are encouraging people of all ages to get involved, you can even bring your dog along! We are proud to offer our continued support to Wiltshire Air Ambulance.”
