The Reuben Foundation is supporting the Injured Jockeys Fund (IJF) by providing significant funding for Jack Berry House, the IJF’s second respite and rehabilitation centre for injured jockeys, officially opened in June 2015 by Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal at Malton in North Yorkshire.
The Hydrowork 500 Therapy Pool, to be known as “The Reuben Foundation Rehabilitation Pool”, will play a key part of the training and rehabilitation programme at Jack Berry House with features such as an underwater treadmill, massage hoses and performance monitoring systems. The pool is specially manufactured in Pennsylvania and for Jack Berry House has been built to spec and transported across the Atlantic.

Lisa Hancock, Chief Executive of The Injured Jockeys Fund says:
“We are thrilled that The Reuben Foundation has offered such generous support for Jack Berry House. At Oaksey House, equipment such as the Alter-G anti-gravity treadmill has shown the importance of world class training and recovery equipment, and The Reuben Foundation Rehabilitation Pool at Jack Berry House will be a flagship component in helping with fitness and aiding recovery for anyone who uses it. We set out to achieve over £3million in fundraising and are almost – but not quite – there, so all donations are still very welcome!”
The Reuben Foundation said that “given the Reubens’ close connection with British Racing we are thrilled to be able to announce the Reuben Foundation’s support for Jack Berry House. We look forward to the new state-of-the-art Reuben Foundation Rehabilitation Pool being of enormous benefit to all who are beneficiaries of the facilities at Jack Berry House. The work of charities like the Injured Jockeys Fund, as well as the energy and commitment of individuals like Jack Berry, is an inspiration to us all.”
