AP’s breeches up for grabs for Tiny Tickers
Tiny Tickers Ambassador and champion jockey, AP McCoy has kindly donated a pair of signed breeches as part of the Small Charity Week Auction from 18th -28th June 2015 to raise money for Tiny Tickers.
Tiny Tickers is taking part in the auction to raise money to improve detection rates and care for babies born with heart defects. AP and his wife, Chanelle, became patrons of Tiny Tickers after their son, Archie, was born with a heart condition. AP has very kindly donated a pair of signed Ornella Prosperi white breeches.
AP said, “Spotting a baby’s heart defect as early as possible can be the difference between life and death – so Tiny Tickers’ work is vital. We’re very happy to support a charity that is so close to our own hearts.”
AP retired in April 2015 after over 23 years at the top of his game. He rode over 4,300 winners, and won an unprecedented 20 consecutive Champion Jump Jockey titles.
Jon Arnold, Tiny Tickers Chief Executive said: “We are honoured to have the support of the McCoy family, and we are hoping that racing fans across the world will get bidding for AP’s breeches and help baby hearts get a better start!”
The auction is a national event raising funds for numerous small charities across the UK.
To support small charities further eBay for Charity are providing up to £2,000 matched funding for the two items with the highest bids.
