Burrow Seven has raised £50,000 for the MND Association just a month after the fundraising campaign was launched.
In November, Burrow and his former Leeds team-mate and good friend Barrie McDermott launched the Burrow Seven fundraising campaign.
The initiative invited the public to become a member of the exclusive Burrow Seven Racing Club to raise money for the MND Association.
One month on from the launch, Burrow and McDermott are back in Leyburn, North Yorkshire, meeting Burrow Seven again and handing over a £50,000 to the MND Association.
Burrow said: “I’m really delighted by the success of the Burrow Seven campaign.
“It’s raised loads of awareness about MND and it’s great to be back at the stables one month on celebrating how much money the campaign has raised.
“I’m really humbled by the whole experience, and by all of the many fundraising events that have been happening recently. Thank you to everyone that’s supported Burrow Seven.”

McDermott said: “We’ve got members from New Zealand, Australia, China and the States and have attracted over 20 corporate partners.
“I see this as just the beginning of this brilliant fundraising adventure.”
Burrow’s wife, Lindsey, said: “I’ve heard so much about Burrow Seven that’s it’s great to finally meet the horse today. He is a beauty, and has such a sweet nature. I can’t wait for the kids to meet him too.”
