Dream Horse Movie Fundraiser – in memory of Richard Buttery

You are invited to support the NRF at our next movie fundraiser day, featuring the film Dream Horse, at Odeon Star Cinema, Semaphore on June 20th at 4pm.

The fundraiser is being organised by Kerry Buttery, in memory of her husband Richard who passed away from a brain tumour. Kerry is a passionate fundraiser for the NRF.

Kerry said, “I started fundraising for the NRF after Richard passed away. I heard about the foundation after ringing Richard’s neurosurgeon Dr Marguerite Harding and asking her which organisation she recommended we support at the funeral.

“When Richard was diagnosed, we were lucky enough that he was placed on a trial based in the USA. I have no doubt that this trial medication gave Richard a longer life and a better quality of life. We had two wonderful years together, taking holidays, spending all our time together and two days a week looking after our first grandchild Elsie who was just two weeks old at diagnosis.

“I continue to fundraise because I truly believe in research for these dreadful brain tumours. The prognosis given to patients is dire - we have to do better for the people yet to be diagnosed.”

Fundraising in memory of Richard gives Kerry a real feeling that he is missed and remembered.

About the Film

The film is about Dream Alliance - an unlikely racehorse bred by small-town Welsh bartender Jan Vokes. With no experience, Jan convinces her neighbors to chip in their meager earnings to help raise Dream in the hopes he can compete with the racing elites.
