Our next meeting:
An illustrated talk by
Jennifer Hoggarth
on Tuesday 26th June
at 8 p.m. in
Gateacre Chapel Hall,
Sandfield Road L25

Jennifer Hoggarth is Chairperson for 'Friends of Beechley Stables' which is part of the Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA). In the words of one rider "I can only walk slowly now but on a horse I can fly!". Her talk will explain the many ways in which horse riding benefits disabled people, interspersed with anecdotes and experiences as a volunteer.
'Friends of Beechley Stables' was set up about two years ago to raise funds and public awareness of the facilities available in Harthill Road, Liverpool. Stable yard duties have expanded to include organising open days, promotional merchandise, photo shoots and publicity, as well as organising more rider activities and going to RDA competitions. Within one year Beechley was visited by 'the REAL Father Christmas', saw baby Jesus in a stable and Elvis enjoying a Summer Fair. In the words of one trustee "It makes you laugh, tugs your heart-strings and keeps you sane".
