Surprise Horse & Dray Visit in Haywards Heath

Harveys horses and dray cart visited Haywards Heath on Saturday 24th January 2015 and included a special stop to visit Fred Garwood, an elderly man who is battling lung cancer.

The surprise was organised by Mr Garwood’s daughter Sarah Stapley, who works part-time at the United Services Club.

Sarah was picked up by the dray cart outside the Club and was allowed to ride on board to the house where her father was waiting in a wheelchair.

She said: “When we arrived, Dad said ‘what on earth is going on?’ and kept saying he must be in a dream.”

As part of the arrangement, Harveys presented Mr Garwood, a long-time fan of the company, with a special box of beer.

A spokesman for Harveys said: “We were presented with the opportunity to make somebody’s day and we were more than happy to do that.

“We arranged for the horsemen to take Mrs Stapley to her father’s house and gave him the opportunity to meet the horses and present him with a small gift.”
