Stable support

Wyfold Riding for the Disabled has nearly raised the £8,000 it needs for a new Bennington four-wheel carriage

Wyfold Riding for the Disabled has nearly raised the £8,000 it needs for a new Bennington four-wheel carriage that is able to carry wheelchairs. Its latest donation of £2,000 came from from Liz Beddows, who organised TREC 2016, which took place near Checkendon in June. About 30 volunteers from the charity helped at the event, which took place at the Black Horse pub. Mrs Beddows, from Dunsden, said: “The charity does an awful lot of good worker with its riders who benefit hugely so it’s a very worthwhile cause. We run the events every so often and we always give our profits to charity. It worked out well because the people from the RDA enjoyed coming to help and I said we were happy to support them with the profits we made.” Fundraiser Gill Rushworth, said: “To receive such a generous donation towards the purchase of our new carriage is wonderful.” The charity currently has a two-wheel carriage which will can take two wheelchairs. It now needs another £1,500 for the new carriage, which will be pulled by Lucky, one of the horses from the Wyfold Court stables. Meanwhile, a new signboard has been installed at the stables thanks to volunteer Sheena Rand, from Nuffield. It was sponsored and made by Signpeople, based at Vines Farm in Cane End.
