A HOTEL in Hook is organising a charity event to help fight cancer and bring the community together.

The Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire, in Dogmersfield, will be hosting a charity run, in combination with two other hotels in London.

The event will see guests and runners take on a 2km or 5km run around the estate in aid of Phyllis Tuckwell hospice and the Brain Tumour Charity. The hotel has supported these charities for over a decade.

A statement from the hotel read: “Guests of all ages are welcome to run or walk a 2km or 5km route around Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire’s glorious Dogmersfield Park Estate, which will later be followed by an afternoon of fun-filled activities and delicious food.

“A dedicated area for children will occupy the younger ones with face painting, cupcake decorations, pony rides and a bouncy castle.

“Our Highwire Adventure will be open for all to enjoy, and guests will also have the option to practice archery on the grounds of the hotel.”

The run for charity will be taking place at 1.30pm on Sunday, 16 September. Tickets can be purchased from the hotel website or bought on the day from £20.

Also at the hotel, a new term is starting for the Riding for the Disabled charity, which has a base for therapeutic horse-riding lessons for the disabled at the hotel.

The Hampshire and Surrey Borders Riding for the Disabled branch has recently started offering a new type of therapy called ‘back-riding.’

This is where its regional physiotherapist, who has specialist training in hippotherapy from The Association of Physiotherapists in Therapeutic Riding, rides mounted on one of the horses with the rider in front of them.

This recently allowed a young boy with cerebral palsy to ride a horse for the first time.
