End of Year Report 2018

End of 2018 Progress

It’s hard to believe that the Global Giving project for Broadlands RDA has been going for more than a year. The asbestos roof was removed, a new roof put in place with an increased footprint to make way for a new integral hay barn, viewing gallery including access for wheelchairs and a small office area for staff and volunteers.

This autumn has seen work begin on the hay barn itself as well as the new viewing gallery which will allow parents and carers to watch their children in comfort instead of standing around in the icy winter winds. The staff and volunteers will also appreciate a warm office area for admin. I have included some images of the ongoing work. This should be completed by the end of January.

On my visit today, I also met Adam on his first visit to Broadlands. Adam is eight and has been able to ride before at another stable, but when he moved up a class, he was no longer eligible. He was very happy to be riding again today. He was deprived of oxygen during birth for a considerable period which resulted in a number of difficulties. Riding will help to strengthen his core muscles and give him confidence and, most importantly, he is visibly happier when riding. He can be seen with Suzanne and two of the volunteers in one of the attached photographs.

I also saw Tom again today. He recently rode all the way home with his helpers and is very proud of this achievement. I am constantly amazed by the growing confidence of all the children who take part here. No matter what the disability is, I have seen improvements in happiness and health in all, adults as well as children.

What's next?

Once the viewing gallery is completed with the office and hay barn, we will be looking at improving the equine therapy facilities. We are very aware of how much difference every donor makes. Please accept our deepest thanks for all you have done and don't forget about us. We are not just a school, not just stables, we are a community of people, volunteers, staff, families including parents and siblings as well as carers and supporters.
