Lady Captain's Charity 2019:
Papplewick Riding for the Disabled Association
Hello everyone and welcome to my page on our website.
My name is Julie Hardwidge and I am delighted to be Lady Captain here at Mapperley Golf Club for 2019.
My charity for this year is Papplewick Riding for the Disabled Association.
As the name suggests this is a very local organisation, providing horse riding therapy for children and adults with a variety of conditions.
Plans for the expansion and improvement of facilities for disabled riders and their families are already underway on site. A large portacabin is being renovated to provide a comfortable meeting place with disabled access and a kitchen area for refreshments. With our support the new stable block can be completed accommodating new horses and so extending riding therapy to a larger number of people.
Siblings are encouraged to ride too. So, as well as the physical benefits, the sessions become enjoyable occasions for families to share together.
With the wonderful support of our members I feel excited to have an opportunity to contribute to these developments so close to home.
Please accept my thanks in advance for your kind support together with my very best wishes for a happy and healthy golfing year in 2019.
