BTRC & Finches Launch Special Edition British Made Silk Scarfs

To celebrate our 30th Anniversary we have teamed up with Finches, ultimate luxury British made accessories & silk scarves to create a bespoke design ‘Washbear’.

Earlier this year Gemma, founder of Finches, reached out to see if BTRC would like to become their Charity partner as they have owned retired racehorses for over 20 years and therefore BTRC was the perfect fit as we all share the same passion.

All Finches scarves start out from a photograph taken by Gemma, so earlier this year Gemma made the trip up to BTRC and captured some fantastic shots of our horses. Following the shoot we decided to use an image of BTRC Washbear, our charity mascot. Finches then artistically transformed the image into a luxury silk.

Finches are donating 100% of profits from the Washbear Silk to BTRC to support our work with retired Thoroughbreds, as well as helping to raise awareness of our work.
