Limited Edition Lithograph of 'Yesterday' Manuscript For Sale!
The George Martin Music Foundation has donated a limited edition lithograph of the Beatles 'Yesterday' manuscript (with original signatures by Paul McCartney and George Martin) to the Sirona Therapeutic Horsemanship Organisation, to assist in their fund-raising efforts.
Sirona Therapeutic Horsemanship (www.sironacic.com) is a Community Interest Company that works with people of varying needs and horses. Looking at horse training using natural horsemanship techniques, it assists people to develop their skills and find out more about themselves.
The manuscript is going under the hammer at Bonhams memorabilia auction on the 15th December so fingers crossed it will raise much needed funds for them.
Insurance costs for the organsation come to over £2500, and there are also licence costs, volunteer support and training, without forgetting the funds needed for horse care etc - especially with the high cost of hay and feed in the winter.
The Sirona Therapeutic Horsemanship is extremely grateful to the George Martin Foundation for this wonderful gesture of support, and we at the BBFC wish them every success with their efforts!
