Volunteers raise £1,520 for young riders' surgery

Volunteers offered rides on our mechanical horse STAN, and held a tombola and raffle to raise money for Alex and Macey's spinal surgery scheduled for this year. 

On Sunday 22nd January a fund raising day was held for two of our young riders, Macey and Alex. Both of the children have Cerebral Palsy and need spinal surgery this year. This will cost a lot of money and so we decided to help with the fund raising.

The volunteers from Follifoot Park Disabled Riders group and the young equestrians from Follifoot Park Riding Centre worked together to give rides on the mechanical horse, STAN. They also held a tombola and a raffle with fantastic prizes and people gave generously. So thank you to everyone who attended and gave a donation. £1,520 was raised which is an amazing amount of money.

Macey will be having her operation at Leeds General Infirmary on March 2nd so we wish her all the best. Alex will be having his operation later in the year.
