Riding centre leads the way

A local riding charity’s pioneering work with disabled people is going from strength to strength. The Perry Riding for the Disabled Association is raising money for its new Cavalier Centre near Much Wenlock, and the project is currently in development with ground-clearing and building underway.

The charity has two events coming up to raise further funds, with an evening reception taking place on Thursday 26 April by kind invitation of Mr and Mrs R Perkins of Buildwas Court. There will be a talk by Major General Arthur Denaro CBE DL on how to motivate, inspire and lead others in testing times. Invitations will be sent out but email jane_barker@hotmail.com if you are interested in attending.

A Charity Race Evening will take place on Tuesday 29 May costing £50 per head to include race card for the evening, first class catering and a three-course meal in the restaurant overlooking the finishing post at Wolverhampton’s race course. Perry RDA’s Danny Budd says, “It really is a great fun night out. If you’re unable to attend, could you perhaps find a business to support us by sponsoring a race, or donating a raffle prize?”
