Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) has received a four-figure donation towards the creation of its National Training Centre in Warwickshire.
Residential sales and lettings agency ehB Residential, which has offices in Leamington Spa and Warwick, has donated £1,000 to the RDA, which is dedicated to improving the lives of disabled children and adults through the use of horse riding and carriage driving.
The new training centre, set to be built at Lowlands Equestrian Centre in Sherwley, will bring together, train and inspire the charity’s volunteers and coaches from around the UK.
Edward Bromwich, managing director of ehB Residential, visited the site to meet RDA fundraising officer Catherine Stuart-Yapp and take a look at how the project is taking shape.
Catherine said: “It’s brilliant to have businesses like ehB Residential getting behind the project. We are so pleased to have them on board as one of the first local companies supporting our National Training Centre.
“We are really looking forward to continuing our relationship with Edward and the rest of the team at ehB Residential.”
RDA, whose president is HRH The Princess Royal, is looking to raise £1.5 million as part of its fundraising campaign to develop the site.
Edward Bromwich said: “Riding for the Disabled Association is a fantastic cause which supports thousands of children and adults both locally and across the UK.
“As we are so firmly rooted within our local community it is very important to us that we give something back, and it is excellent that RDA has chosen to build its new national training centre here in Warwickshire.
“We look forward to working with RDA going forward and continuing to support them with this project.”
