The Coleraine Branch of the Riding for the Disabled wish to express their thanks to all who attended their recent Fashion Show in the Lodge Hotel in Coleraine which raised the wonderful amount of £3,000. T
hey’d also like to express their gratitude to the Lodge Hotel for their incredible support and to the stores who put so much time and effort into the show. The show enjoyed a full house to see fashions by Daisy Mae Boutique, Stable Lane, Fashion Flair, Fee McToal Millinery, Captain Tortue and Dough Equestrian. Music was by John Blair and Brian Moore was Compere for the evening. The latter paid a visit to the centre for the cheque ceremony and took advantage of a spell on one of the horses, “I hadn’t been on a horse since I was about twelve years old and thankfully the beautiful mare Annie was very gentle with me.
To say I was gobsmacked with the facilities at the RDA is a considerable understatement and we really should be doing all we can to help this wonderful facility”. Over 100 disabled people a week are facilitated at the centre and all by local volunteers who see first hand the wonderful help it gives them. The Coleraine Branch is the biggest such centre in the UK and has been helping disabled people in the area for over 30 years.
