Duchy Group Receive Generous Grant from The Peter O’Sullevan Charitable Trust
Duchy Group are thrilled to have received a generous grant from The Peter O’Sullevan Charitable Trust, which has enabled us to purchase a new pony, and some much needed new tack and equipment. The trust is in its 22nd year and generously supports equine related charities and also those working with young people, people with disabilities and others associated with the racing industry.
Nigel Payne who is administrator for the trust said “ The Peter O’Sullevan Charitable Trust were delighted to help Duchy RDA with much needed funds, it thrills us to hear of the arrival of LadyBird and we hope she proves a wonderful acquisition”. Nigel visited the group on Wednesday to meet LadyBird and also watch some ridden sessions. Nigel also added “ The wonderful work of Riding for the Disabled organisations across the UK are worthy of support and we are happy to contribute when we can”.
A new pony and funds available to purchase a further one in due course means that Duchy Group can expand and offer more opportunities for riding and therapy for children and adults with disabilities.
