Grant gives disabled a chance

BUNDABERG'S Riding for the Disabled Association group is another step closer to offering its service to the community, after receiving a $1000 grant that will be used to buy much-needed equipment.

Group spokeswoman Megan Wray said with the enclosed arena assembled and the horses already screened, the funds from the Sugarland Shoppingtown community grant would be used to buy disability aids, and training volunteers was the next step.

"Once we have enough volunteers trained, we can start offering the program," she said.

The service will be run in conjunction with the Bundaberg Pony Club at the AgroTrend Ground facility.

A training session will be held at the grounds for those interested in volunteering on September 22-23.

To get involved, phone Ms Wray on 4157 6810.
