Raising Money for Gaddesden Place Riding for the disabled.

GP-RDA- (8)St Mary’s Church has a programme of fundraising to support local, national, and international charities. In the last six years this programme has raised nearly forty seven thousand pounds for a range of charities. For 2016 our charity of the year is Gaddesden Place RDA Centre.

This is a small charity just outside Hemel Hempstead dedicated to providing therapeutic riding for people with disabilities.   It is a member of the national Riding for the Disabled Association.

We would be thrilled if you could help us to raise money for this important local charity. Details are on a special web page, with dates of forthcoming events, a donation form and some more photos of the centre in action. Please have a look at the page.
