£1,500 boost for riding centre
5:38pm Tuesday 5th November 2013 in News
A RIDING centre for disabled people has received a £1,500 boost thanks to a popular annual event.
Wear Valley Riding for the Disabled Association at Escomb, near Bishop Auckland, raised £750 at a competition week for its members.
However, with help from volunteer Sally Graham, Barclays, in Barnard Castle, offered to match fund the figure.
Christine Barratt-Atkin, of the riding centre, said: “The competition week is always a very popular event and the riders have a really good time. We’re very grateful to Sally and Barclays.”
The money will go towards the running costs and specialist equipment.
Anyone willing to volunteer, particularly during the week, is urged to get in touch.
