TR Fastenings’ new sponsorship of Ashdown Forest RDA, will not only assist with the day-to-day running costs of this important East Sussex Equine Therapy Centre for children, but brings the dream of purchasing a much-needed larger pony a major step closer, according to its coach, Allison Remmen.
Founded in 2008, Ashdown Forest RDA offers a variety of horse-related activities for local disabled children from the age of 3 to 14 years old. Sessions involve riding, pony care and the all-important mucking out! As Allison Remmen explains, “Riding gives the children confidence, exercise, understanding, loads of fun plus a whole new level of confidence and self-belief. In short, it changes lives, so we are hugely grateful to TR Fastenings for their generous support of our work.”
“We are delighted to sponsor this worthwhile charity,” comments Malcolm Diamond MBE, Executive Chairman at TR Fastenings. “Humans have a natural affinity with horses and it is wonderful to see how happy the children are when they spend time with them.”
