Thank you Stratford RDA

A group of 150 horse riders took to the fields around Kineton on Sunday 21st August to help raise a whopping £2,700 to be split between the Stratford upon Avon Riding for the Disabled Group and the Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance.

The fun ride had been offered by Mr and Mrs Hurley, the owners of Kineton Grange Farm, in memory of their friend and RDA volunteer, Liz Jackson.

The sun shone as they rode from Kineton Grange Farm to RDA’s venue at Home Farm, Compton Verney, where they were treated to refreshments donated by Sainsburys, Wellesbourne, continued on through Combrook and back to Kineton.

NFU Mutual sponsored the rosettes which were given to the returning riders by Simon, Liz’s husband.

The charities would like to thank the Stratford Ambulance Service, sponsored by Avonvale Veterinary Practice, the landowners, those who gave donations and services and all its marshalls for helping to make the event such a success which will enable them both to continue to offer their services to the local community.
