Disabled riding charity bus new pony with donation

WYFOLD Riding for the Disabled in Kingwood has bought a new pony with money raised by the Phyllis Court Club charity action group.

A race night at the private members’ club in Marlow Road, Henley, in September raised £1,300.

The money covered the purchase of the 14-year-old chestnut mare, called Sweet Pea, and all its tack.

Gill Rushworth, the charity’s fundraising co-ordinator, said: “We are very grateful. We have been looking for a new pony for a long time and we hope that Sweet Pea will be a popular member of our team.

“Without the support of local organisations, we would not be able to keep our great charity going.”
