Whilst we endeavor to keep our overheads as low as possible and all our helpers are volunteers with no paid staff, there are expenses involved in running the Chard and District RDA group.

We have to make sure our special tack is maintained and when necessary, replaced. Then there are the costs of a regular farrier and replacing equipment (such as toys for example, that we use in the children's ride). We also issue an annual Newsletter to supporters for which there are also expenses involved.

We rely entirely on the generosity of donors to carry on being able to offer riding opportunities to children and adults with disabilities throughout the Chard and district area.

If you would be interested in making a donation, we'd be not only delighted but also very grateful. You can send us a cheque, made out to 'Chard and District RDA', to Chard and District RDA, 3 Frog Lane, Combe St Nicholas, Chard, Somerset. TA20 3NX.
