Riding for the Disabled

Members of Helensburgh Lions Club recently visited Colgrain Stables to meet some volunteers of Gareloch Riding for the Disabled.

Brian Stephenson of the Lions Club was shown round the excellent facilities by the RDA volunteer fund raiser Ian Ward who thanked the Club for their interest and advised “that the Group rely on the continued generosity of local groups to support us financially. We also rely on our wonderful volunteers to assist with the running the riding sessions”.

After a pleasant hour meeting the horses Graham Henderson presented a cheque for £475 to Louise Warrall, another of the volunteers, to cover the cost of urgently needed special riding stirrups and associated tack.
