RDA celebrates huge donation
Equine insurance customers could be interested to learn that the Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) has received an £80,000 donation from leading rural business Countrywide.
The organisation offers the largest range of equine products and services to horse insurance customers in the UK and awarded the money to the charity during a special event at Countrywide's new head offices in Evesham, Worcestershire.
Chief executive of Countrywide John Hardman said the organisation was delighted to raise so much money for such a worthwhile cause that is so close to the heart of many of its employees.
RDA chief executive Ed Bracher added: "The money will be used to support over 500 RDA groups across the UK and continue to develop the charity in order to provide disabled people with a fulfilling and enjoyable experience through horse riding."
Earlier this year, the RDA revealed it was using funding from the mayor of London to help provide volunteers with additional skills to try and help the next generation of para-equestrian riders.
