My story

[p]Hello and welcome to my fundraising page!![/p][p]I am very excited to run the London Marathon in 2020 and even more excited to do so for a cause very close to my heart. [/p][p]Following the postponement of the April Marathon, I am very nervous but determined to run the virtual London Marathon on the 4th of October. [/p][p]I have been extremely fortunate that I have been able to experience horses in my life, learnt to ride and even competed in various disciplines. Horses have given me so much over the years in terms of what I have learnt but also in terms of the benefits they have had to my mental health and happiness. [/p][p]I volunteer with the Andover branch of the Riding for the Disabled Association and have been amazed and deeply moved by the incredible experience that they provide to local people with disabilities.[/p][p]The RDA has helped people develop empathy and confidence as well as riding skills and core strength. It also helps to enrich the lives of people who need a bit extra support to learn how to ride and enjoy horses.[/p][p]The Andover RDA runs a range of different rides for children and adults and is able to support a wide range of behavioural and physical challenges. As a group we are able to work on the basics of learning to ride and how to look after a pony right up to our riders who compete at the RDA National Championships. At Andover RDA we focus on what someone can do and make sure they have fun doing it![/p][p]Not only has the Andover RDA helped so many people learn to ride, it has also continued to help me learn and grow as a volunteer. The RDA has also helped me feel like I can give something back and help people enjoy an activity that has helped me so much over the years. [/p][p]The Andover RDA is at a crucial point where the Covid-19 pandemic has halted most of its activities, including fundraising. Despite this, the kind and calm RDA ponies still have to be looked after by volunteers.[/p][p]The Andover RDA would really appreciate as much help as you are able to give so that we can make sure that when things go back to "normal" our riders can continue to learn the great skills that the RDA can teach them. [/p][p]Find out more about the Andover RDA here: [url=https://www.andover-rda.org.uk/]https://www.andover-rda.org.uk/[/url][/p][p]Please give what you feel comfortable donating to this incredible group.[/p][p]A huge thank you from myself and everyone involved in the Andover RDA,[/p][p]Siobhan[/p]

Well done on raising money for Andover RDA. It's a wonderful organisation that works closely with many youngsters and adults to give them the joy of riding regularly, as well as helping their fitness and mental wellbeing. I hope it doesn't hurt too much!
