After raising over £500 for their Year Group charity, Riding for the Disabled, at their Cake Sale, some very fortunate Form 4 pupils were able to visit the Cranleigh RDA Centre at Casi’s Farm, Rowly on Saturday 24th February.
As a voluntary organisation, this charity receives no state or lottery funding, but just relies entirely on donations and fundraising efforts which enable them to offer therapeutic riding to people with special needs to benefit their health and well being, to achieve their goals and to have fun!
We presented the £515.20 cheque from our fundraising efforts and were able to see first hand the new facilities that we are currently raising funds for.
It was wonderful to see this brand new riding school and stables that hosts up to 200 pupils a week from as far away as Brighton. We witnessed a couple of lessons and spoke to the many volunteers that give their time so willingly each week.
Having seen what a difference we can make, it will encourage us to keep raising more funds for this amazing charity.
