Bannockburn Group of Riding for the Disabled

In the current climate, it is increasingly difficult for charities to raise funds to maintain their services. As one of a small number of funders to provide grants towards the running costs of charities, the Foundation received an application for core cost funding from Bannockburn Group of Riding for the Disabled in 2012.

Our grant of £5,000 helped to meet the Bannockburn Group’s funding shortfall and enabled them to continue to provide therapeutic contact with horses for over 330 children, young people and adults who have a range of physical disabilities, learning difficulties and social and emotional issues.

Through the Bannockburn Group, service users can develop equestrian as well as social skills, gain experience, confidence and self-esteem, and fulfil their personal potential.
