Gerrard backing pointto-point for fifth season

Private-client investment manager Gerrard is sponsoring the Ladies Open Point-to-Point Championship for its fifth season, starting in January 2002.

The first of 24 qualifiers in the season takes place at the Cambridge Harriers Hunt Club in Cottenham on January 6.

The final will be held at Exeter Racecourse on May 15, with the winner getting prize money of £5,000.

Gerrard says sponsorship of the open championship is an important part of its marketing activity across its 30 offices.

It will be represented at all qualifiers and the final to present the winning rider and owner with a memento.

Managing director Christopher Moorsom says: “We are delighted to be sponsoring the open championship for another year.”
