Tielcey Park to Support CatWalk Trust

Tielcey Park to Support CatWalk Trust

Tielcey Park Equestrian Centre in Aokautere, near Palmerston North, has pledged to support the CatWalk Trust. CatWalk was established for the purpose of finding a cure for spinal cord injuries. Tielcey Park, recently been purchased by Clarity Group Limited, has pledged 10% of their pre-tax profits to the Trust for the next ten years. The CatWalk Trustees originally gathered together because of common links to a friend critically injured in a riding accident. That friend was Catriona Williams - now a C6-7 tetraplegic.

Initially the group planned to fundraise for Williams herself – but a bigger picture quickly became clear. A cure for all was Williams’ dream – and so CatWalk was born. As CEO for The CatWalk Trust, Colleen Young said “we are honored to have such magnificent support for our Trust. This on-going support from Tielcey Park will continue to assist us with providing more funds to contribute to finding a cure for spinal cord injury.”

The Founder of the Trust, Catriona Williams, commented “I’m personally thrilled that the initiative of Tielcey Park’s new Managing Director, Margo Aasen, has been able to combine my two greatest passions: spending money on all things equestrian and the CatWalk Trust. Tielcey Park is a fantastic equestrian facility and one that I made the most of during my riding years.”

When asked why Tielcey Park is supporting CatWalk, Margo Aasen, explained “because we can. Spinal injuries are a moment away for many of us riders, and we now in a position to make a significant contribution to support the Trust. Catriona is an example to all of us – her perseverance, courage and positive attitude inspire us all.” Margo is a life member of the XL Results Foundation. This foundation is dedicated to the Mission of World Wide Wealth: Growing our collective power to create and contribute wealth through Social Enterprise.

XL Results Foundation has developed into the largest entrepreneur network in Asia Pacific, with 50,000 members networking online and at monthly events in 10 countries, and publishes XL Magazine – the World’s first magazine dedicated to Social Enterprise. Tielcey Park will become part of XL’s Billion Dollar Challenge – a global initiative to track the annual earnings and contributions of social enterprises towards World Wide Wealth. The target is towards collective earnings of US$1Billion with US$100Million going to charities each year by 2020 Margo also announced the launch of the Tielcey Park Club.

For a $40 donation to the CatWalk Trust, members will receive a permanent 5% discount at The Tack Room – Tielcey Park’s new saddlery and feed store, will be put on the preferential invite list for visiting trainers and clinics, and also receive a $5 discount voucher for a lesson at The Riding Academy. Tielcey Park is hosting a charity equestrian fashion show to launch the Tielcey Park Club. This event is being held on Saturday 6th May at 7pm, for a 7.30pm start, at Tielcey Park. The donation to CatWalk is $10 which includes nibbles a glass of something nice, and a seat in our Arena of Fashion.

“It should be a fun night, we'll be showcasing equestrian fashion from Europe and the USA - both formal and informal riding and non-riding clothes. The saddlery will be open as well, should people wish to take advantage of their discount by joining the club” said Margo.

If people wish to buy tickets, or make a donation, they should send a cheque for $10 made payable to “CatWalk Trust” to Tielcey Park, 474 Fitzherbert East Road, RD 1, Palmerston North; with their name and address
