The first ten payments will be made during the six month period April – September 2008. The second payments will be during the period October 2008 - March 2009

Details of Scheme.

Applications for the period April - September 2008 will be kept unopened until 1st April, when ten envelopes will be chosen at random.

If less than ten applications are received by 1st April the remaining grants will be allocated on a first come, first served, basis.

The ten owners chosen will receive a voucher guaranteeing a payment of £100 towards the cost of a MRI scan.

The cavalier must be MRI scanned & the voucher & a copy of a scan certificate, or a MRI receipt, returned within the 6 month period April - September 2008.

The name of the cavalier can be deleted from the certificate.
