The Racehorse Sanctuary near Bruton, opened its new High Dependency Unit at the end of April.

Jilly Cooper, a great friend of Peter’s cut the ribbon accompanied by Trust administrator Nigel Payne.

Colin Passmore, a Trustee of the Sanctuary said “This is a dream come true for so many people and we have only been able to do this with the terrific support from the Peter O’Sullevan Trust, who have been fantastic to us”.

As Jilly said when cutting the ribbon “Peter would be so delighted to see his money being used this way!”
