Charity risk barometer
Our Charity Risk Barometer 2019 uncovers key challenges facing charities, helps you capitalise on opportunities and reap major rewards.
Pegasus RDA offers horse riding to children with disabilities to improve core strength, mobility, confidence and communication skills in a fun and supportive environment. With over 30 riders and 20 volunteers, the charity can function efficiently and positively in order to offer sound advice, ideas and support to its participants and their parents. The hard work and enthusiasm of the charity and its team is shown through their success in achieving national and regional awards, such as RDA Young Volunteer of the Year 2017 and in 2018.
The £1,000 donation from Ecclesiastical will enable Pegasus RDA to buy essential equipment for their sessions including adapted reins, safety stirrups and things like beanbags, buckets and balls to enhance their teaching. It will also support the upkeep of their horse, Cooper, as shoes, hay and feed are all expensive. They are also planning to use it to celebrate their riders at their inclusive pony day and pay for essential first-aid training for the coaches.
