Doc Martin star to give boost to equine charity
ACTOR Martin Clunes will be among the crowds at Badminton Horse Trials in his role as president of the British Horse Society.
The organisation has been chosen as the event’s nominated charity for the year and the popular actor - best known for his Doc Martin and Men Behaving Badly roles - will help promote its work during his visit, as well as meet many of its members attending the international.
Meanwhile, the Princess Royal - who was a successful competitor at Badminton herself and is the society’s vice-patron - will be in the main arena at the conclusion of the trials on Sunday, May 6, to present the Mitsubishi Motors Trophy to the winning rider.
Princess Anne is also expected to meet some of the many volunteers who give up their time for the society to improve and promote horse welfare, horse and rider safety, riding routes and many other aspects of equestrianism.
