As part of an ongoing campaign to raise money for the Riding for the Disabled Association, Harbro Country Stores has successfully fundraised £7000 to donate to the Scotland branch of the RDA.
The campaign, which saw 25p from the sale of every bag of Harbro Horse feed sold, ran for a year in selected Harbro retail outlets based in Scotland.
The donation will be used across Scotland, to help support the fantastic work the charity do. In the past year alone, RDA groups across Scotland supported 2045 participants to engage with horses through riding, vaulting, carriage driving or just spending time with a pony through new initiatives such as Tea with a Pony which is offered to people living with dementia.
Kim McCutcheon, from RDA Scotland, said:
“We are delighted to receive this substantial donation from Harbro Country Stores and huge thanks to their customers for their part in this. RDA Scotland will use this money throughout the country to help increase our regional activities, training programme and opportunities for learning, benefitting both participants as well as our amazing volunteers.”
Allan Bain, Harbro Retail Director, said:
“Harbro is delighted to continue supporting Riding for the Disabled Association, a charity close to the hearts of both our customers and staff.
I am personally aware of how much the RDA enrich and support the lives of children and adults with physical and learning difficulties through contact with horses. Thanks must go to all of our customers who bought Harbro horse feed over the last 12 months, helping us to raise such a fantastic amount and of course to the amazing RDA volunteers.”
