Charity fun race

The Almancil International Rotary Club (AIRC) donated 1,200 euros to the Riding for the Disabled Association at the end of term gymkhana held at Pinetrees Riding Centre on May 22.

Members and guests of AIRC recently held a fun race evening where the money was raised.

The funds will be used to provide therapeutic riding lessons for disabled children who would not otherwise be able to fund the lessons themselves.

The cheque was presented to Rosemary Owens, the chairperson for the association, by Peter Hinze, President of AIRC, together with member Keith Johnson.

Peter Hinze praised the efforts of all the staff and volunteers of the association and said that AIRC was “delighted” to be associated with “this worthwhile cause”.
