Lincolnshire Freemasons' £500 donation helps Evie take disability message into schools

Monday, 30 May 2022

A £500 donation from Lincolnshire #Freemasons will help amateur equestrian ace Evie Toombes continue to compete and take her message about hidden disabilities into schools around the UK

Evie, whose need for 20-hour a day medical treatment hasn’t stopped her from competing and campaigning to raise awareness of invisible illnesses, suffers from complex medical needs including spina bifida and gastroparesis, and must have 20 hours a day of intravenous nutrition simply to keep her alive.

The Round Table Lodge of Lincolnshire members gave £500 to help her. Using a mobile medical unit/horsebox combination she has been able to continue competing, training, and living the best life possible. She said: 'I’ve been able to connect IV’s in a sterile environment and deal with all my other health needs due to spina bifida. I’m looking forward to visiting schools again to educate on hidden disability and starting to train as a para riding coach with British Showjumping. Your support has made this happen.'

Ray Tinkler put Evie forward as a cause worthy of support from the Round Table Lodge of Lincolnshire, and was accompanied by Brian Cott and Tim Miller to hand over the funds.
