New stretch target

Hi everyone I have stretched the target so Daniel can raise even more money for this excellent cause. The RDA (Woodbridge and District Group) are self funding and are having to move premises this year which will come as an extra cost, over and above their day-to-day running costs. 


Daniel is registered severely visually impaired and has severe mobility issues caused by cerebral palsy. He is unable to hold his head for long, or sit or stand independently and relies on a wheelchair to mobilise. The doctors didn't expect Daniel to live until the age of 2.... He is now 5 years old and his favourite hobby is riding Maddie the horse once a week at the RDA (Woodbridge and District Group). 

Daniel has been horse riding at the RDA  for over 2 years. He thoroughly enjoys the sessions and has come on leaps and bounds with his horse riding since he first started. It has improved his confidence in different environments and situations,  has helped with his posture and muscular control of his body and has enabled him to have fun whilst doing physiotherapy. 

The RDA provides Daniel and other children with additional needs the ability to be able to horse ride. The staff have the knowledge and expertise on how to support the child on a horse and how to allow them to gain the most from their session in accordance to their needs. 

The RDA are a charity which  help children and adults with a wide range of disabilities but require regularly donations to continue their good work.  For more information about the RDA please visit the RDA Woodbridge and District Group Facebook page:

Any donation however small would be gratefully appreciated. Thank you. 

Daniel's sponsored horse trek will be taking place Saturday 15th July at noon at Pettistree Hall Farm, Sutton, Woodbridge IP12 3EH.
