DBS proud to support skydive for local riding for the disabled charity

DBS Internet Marketing is delighted to be sponsoring a skydive to support a well deserving local charity. 

Sarah Harris, a group instructor for Kesteven Rideability (RDA) is taking part in a skydive from 13,000ft on 30th June at Chatteris Airfield in Cambridgeshire, to raise vital funds for the  charity. Kesteven RDA is a local riding for the disabled charity based at The Paddocks Riding Centre, Hough on the Hill, Grantham.

Founded in 1988, Kesteven RDA offers subsidised horse riding to adults and children with a physical and/or learning disability. This year the charity is celebrating its 25th anniversary, and in the last 25 years has helped many riders to achieve their personal goals, ranging from grass roots riding each week through to regional and national competitions. The charity relies on fundraising and donations from members of the public and businesses. To mark this milestone anniversary, Sarah and a few others have accepted the challenge to take part in the sky dive, despite having a fear of heights, to continue to raise essential funds for the charity so that it can continue its important work.

Speaking about the charity, Sarah said “Horses play an amazing role in supporting both adults and children with disabilities. They allow individuals to have autonomy and independence; to make decisions and build confidence regardless of their disability. It offers a place for friendship, fun and opportunities to learn new skills and to compete in a sport for those individuals who wish to. Watching our riders grow in confidence and ability is so rewarding and the main reason I think why many of our volunteers and instructors love coming each week”.
