South Bucks Riding for the Disabled – Pinewood Sponsorship

Steve recently went to visit South Bucks Riding for the Disabled to present them with a donation from Pinewood Studios.

Here is a snippet from the Pinewood press release:

Pinewood Studios is very proud to sponsor the local branch of Riding for the Disabled Association in South Bucks; this year awarding the charity £2,000.00. Presenting the cheque on behalf of Pinewood Studios to the SB RDA Chairperson, Di Redfern, and Paralympic Equestrian Gold Medal winner, Sophie Christiansen was the UK’s leading Horse Master for Film and Television, Steve Dent.

In addition to his credits as a premier Horse Master, Steve is a renowned Stunt Performer, Stunt Coordinator and Director who has been lending his knowledge and expertise to the film and television industry for over 40 years. On occasions when Steve needs a private indoor arena to teach A-list actors to ride, he uses the facilities at SBRDA.

South Bucks RDA is a UK charity promoting the aims of the Riding for the Disabled Association by providing people with the opportunity to ride to benefit their health and well-being in the South Bucks area. The instructors at South Bucks RDA Group, in partnership with physiotherapists and all of their other volunteers, work with riders who have a variety of disabilities including learning difficulties, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, paraplegia, rheumatoid arthritis, Down’s syndrome, epilepsy, deafness, blindness and limb amputation. The school is in need of both donations and volunteers to help maintain their renowned school in the local area, so if you think you can help, please contact the school directly via www.southbucksrda.com.

 

It’s a brilliant charity that does fantastic work, so valuable for the community. We are very lucky to have them so close to us! Have a look at their website and facebook page for more information.
