Grants & Donations

We have had amazing support this year with several grants and donations.

Surrey Community Foundation granted us £2,000 from the  Peter Harrison Foundation to complete the building of our new stable block.

Horley Lions have given us £1,000 from the proceeds of their Horse Show, where we help provide the judges.  C Brewer & Sons Trust gave us £500 as did the Tobacco Pipe Makers and Tobacco Trade Benevolent Fund.

Our patron Dame Judi made a generous donation to our funds.

Most excitingly the Incorporated Church Institute (Upper Tooting) has given us £20,000 to start Carriage Driving within the Group.  This will enable us to buy  both a driving pony and a carriage, and we hope eventually to build a driving track around one of the fields at Little Brook.

Some of these donations come from people who have first-hand knowledge or our work through family or friends who ride with us.  We always say “You only have to see the pleasure the children get out of riding to be convinced of its benefits”.
