VIP send-off for dray and pair on road trip

Manx Carriage Driving 4 Disabled lap TT course

There'll be an unusual sight for drivers on the TT course over the next few days.

A horse-drawn dray and pair is making its way around the Island to highlight new Island charity Manx Carriage Driving 4 Disabled.

Members have been learning techniques in specially-adapted carriages, during weekly sessions at Ballavartyn Equestrian Centre in Santon. 

This afternoon (Thurs) the 'two horsepower' combination sets off on a four day road trip from the Grandstand, and is due back across the finishing line on Sunday evening.

They'll be stopping at villages and pubs to raise money, on their way round. 

Volunteer fund-raiser Martin Sewell says a VIP send-off and homecoming are planned:
