Although we are affiliated to Riding for the Disabled Association (our ‘Trade Association’) we are a financially independent company providing therapy for disabled children. In order to meet our costs, we rely entirely on the generous donations that are made to Newbury RDA and through fundraising events run by our volunteers and other kind people.

As always, many thanks go to all of our volunteers and supporters, without whom we would be unable to operate; to all those who ran fundraising events, especially those who run our highly successful Autumn Gift Fair under the leadership of Carolyn Whitehead and Linda Benson; and to Merial Animal Heath who provide annual vaccinations for RDA ponies countrywide.

And to the many other organisations and individuals who kindly made donations to Newbury RDA during the year.
Huge thanks to go to Rapid7 who sent a group of volunteers to help us in October, for the second year in succession, and to Vodafone who brought a team of around 30 volunteers in November to continue the good work. In addition, we would like to thank Downe House for their continued help sending small groups to dig up ragwort, clean water troughs etc.
