Patrons and Trustees for New Beginnings Horses

New Beginnings Horses could not survive without its patrons and trustees. The day to day runnning of the charity is managed by Pam and Kevin with the support of our able bodied trustees and patrons, without whom we could not survive.

Graham Orange – Trustee

"As a proud Yorkshireman, I'm honoured to be a trustee of New Beginnings. I worked in a professional capacity for Yorkshire racecourses for over 32 years, so I know how important racing is to the county and how the county is important to its racing!

"As a trustee of New Beginnings, I'm continuing my association with racehorses, albeit in a different capacity. These are exciting times for New Beginnings, and I'm delighted to be part of a great team. It's a wonderful charity which represents a very important aspect of the racing industry, something that appeals to both racegoers and the public as a whole."

Countess of Halifax – Patron

"As a breeder of thoroughbreds and an owner of racehorses I am proud to show my commitment and support by being a Patron of New Beginnings.

"As a horsewoman myself, I can fully endorse the care and empathy show to these magnificent horses, who deserve the chance of a secure and fulfilling life following racing. I acknowledge the dedication, passion and commitment shown by Pam and Kevin to the welfare of all the horses in their care and their support for the racing industry."

Michael Shinners – Trustee

"In my many years of working within the industry, most recently as Head of Sports PR for Sky Bet I have become acutely aware of the need to make provisions for horses in their retirement. 

"I was fortunate to visit New Beginnings four years ago and was immediately impressed by the work they do.  They prepare horses for the next stages of their lives in a friendly and professional manner. I’m proud to be associated with them as a trustee of the charity as they continue their invaluable work and service to the sport."

Oli Bell - Patron

"I feel incredibly proud and lucky to be involved with New Beginnings and have seen first hand the incredible work that they do. From the moment I heard about their work I was fascinated because I truly believe the aftercare for horses is such an important part of racing. As soon as I met Pam and Kevin I realised that not only was New Beginning’s a very special place, but it was an organisation being run by incredibly special people. There bright smiles and warmth on arrival made me feel as though I had been coming to New Beginnings for years and made me feel part of the NB family. I have subsequently seen the team and the horses including the legend that is Mister McGoldrick regularly at York racecourse on the Knavesmire and it’s incredibly satisfying to see how many racegoers pay a real interest in learning about the great work of the charity. The important thing for all of us is to ensure that organisations such as New Beginnings are able to operate freely and without the cloud of financial pressures hanging over their heads so it’s vital that we continue to get the word out there about just how remarkable a place New Beginnings is. I am sure that if anyone reading this meets, Pam, Kevin or Mister McGoldrick then you will, like me, be incredibly touched by New Beginnings and want to be a part of what I consider to be a great family."
