In memory of Eileen
Why we need your help
We have been informed that our Eileen, a Trustee and Tuesday Eve coach, passed away on Saturday 21st November.
Eileen started volunteering on a Tuesday p.m. at about the time ECC was officially opened.
She was a dedicated volunteer under Robert Evens guidance taking over from him when he left on Tuesday Eve
Eileen organised fundraising pony rides at local fetes and demonstration rides.
She was the first to take a rider to the Special Olympics where they were very successful.
Her rider's did well in their Grades and I think one even attained a gold.
Eileen subsequently had riders that qualified for the National Championships where they all did very well.
One of her riders even went on an RDA holiday in Portugal.
During the many years Eileen has been with the RDA she has served on various committees and has been Chairman as well as treasurer of the Centre and latterly a trustee.
She became press correspondent, gave talks on the Centre, County Chair, County Coach, Examiner, Countryside Challenge Judge and Trainee Adviser.
Paul Hooley was the ECC President and worked with Eileen for the good of the ECC. During his year as President of a local Rotary Group he awarded her the high accolade of a Paul Harris Fellowship for her work with the charity.
Eileen will be missed by all - our condolences to her family.
