"The National Jockeys Trust are never going to leave me or my family."
"I just wanted to send a message to say thank you so much for your support. I have found it very difficult to move on after racing, and the support and financial assistance that the National Jockeys Trust gave me has been beyond anything I could have imagined."
Dennis William Green
"My journey in racing began in the early 1970s as an apprentice for legendary Caulfield trainer Geoff Murphy. These were tough times for a fourteen-year-old, and unfortunately, Murphy’s stable was not a healthy or safe working environment for children."
I never understood how important the NJT is in the support and help they give to injured jockeys. I hope no one ever needs their help, but sadly, it is a risk we take to do what we love, and the NJT is a major part of the racing industry and greatly valued.
I would like to sincerely thank the National Jockeys Trust and everyone else involved in getting my new wheelchair-accessible vehicle. “The difference it has made to my everyday life is invaluable, and I appreciate the time and effort put into making it happen.
Michelle La Vars
When Michelle had her fall in 1992, the National Jockeys Trust didn’t exist, and it was hard for her not to feel a little abandoned by the industry. "There just wasn’t anywhere for me to fit in, but now, with the NJT, I don’t feel that way. I know they have my back, and I’m remembered for what I gave to the racing industry."
