We launched our online crowdfunding campaign on the 5th of February… and the message flowed out through the community with young and old donating to the project. While most donations happened online or at the CCT, we were pleasantly surprised to receive a lovely letter and donation from Jean Tudehope. A couple of phone calls, and a road trip was planned to meet Jean, and friend Laurie Watson, and learn more about the close connection between miner and horse. You can read the full article below.
Do you have a great story about your memories of the Pit Ponies? Or perhaps your father or grandfather worked alongside the horses underground? If so we’d love to hear about it, and add it to our growing collection of history. Please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org or drop into the CCT for a chat.
