RDA benefits from Waitrose Community Fund

RDA benefits from Waitrose Community Fund

The Maisemore Group RDA recently received the fantastic sum of £325 from the Cheltenham Waitrose Community Matters box fund.

Each month every Waitrose donates £1,000 between three nominated local good causes and Maisemore Group RDA was one of the lucky causes selected for the month of September. At the checkout, customers are given a token to be placed in the box of the cause they would most like to support and Group Secretary, Moira Norwood, was recently presented with a cheque for £325 by Tracy at Cheltenham Waitrose.

Operating from the equine centre at Hartpury College the group provides and delivers opportunities for therapy, achievement and enjoyment to people with disabilities within the local area and is most grateful to have been given the chance to benefit from the community initiative of Waitrose and thanks everyone for their support.
