In April 2019, local lad Ruaridh aged 11 headed to Crufts Junior show with his dogs. This is what he had to say: ” I would like to thank Yusef Abubaker Memorial Trust for donating towards my trip.
It was such a great pleasure to take part and overcome challenges that I had to overcome due to my ADHD and Autism. It was certainly out of my comfort zone.
But I am delighted to share with you that I came 5th and 6th in the U12 large section. Also we competed in a relay team, where we successfully came 3rd in the jumping section.
Getting on to the podium was beyond our wildest dreams, so much so, that I aim to go back next year (which I am starting saving for already and will be thinking of what I can do to raise the money).”
Well done Ruaridh, we look forward to hearing of your progress.
