Lincolnshire Wolds Riding for the Disabled has been helped by Louth Rotary club.

The President of the Rotary Club, Andrew Leonard, presented a cheque for £200 to Jeanette Jones of Lincolnshire Wolds Riding for the Disabled after she had given a talk to the club.

Jeanette told them about the activities and volunteer provided service they give to disabled riders at their premises at Kenwick Park, for which they have a waiting list.

One of the regular riders, Willam, pictured at the front of the photograph, helped with the visual part of her presentation which had been arranged by Rotarian Teresa Doe, pictured on the right.

The Lincolnshire Wolds Riding for the Disabled group was set up in 1996 to deliver opportunities for therapy, achievement and enjoyment for people of all ages with disabilities.

The group needs volunteers who can give some time to help disabled children and adults enjoy horse riding.

The group meets on Tuesday evenings at the LRAC at Kenwick.

No experience is required as full training will be given and they will initially be teamed with an experienced helper.

Experience with horses or ponies is not essental as volunteers can help to walk alongside riders or make tea and coffee.

If you could give some time on a Tuesday from 5.30pm to 7.30pm call Jeanette on 01507 462407.
