THE Whitchurch Women's Institute (WI) has donated money to a charity which runs a facility where horses and ponies provide therapy.

Whitchurch WI member Jaci Abdollahzadeh is a volunteer for Andover Riding for the Disabled and suggested the charity as a recipient for some of the funds raised during the WI’s time in Rotations Charity Shop in Whitchurch in 2023.

At the January meeting, WI members were pleased to welcome Alex Hambury-Williams, the chair and ride leader and Sue Cox the trustee, safeguarding officer and ride leader for the charity to talk about the charities work.

At the meeting, the WI was pleased to present a cheque for £750 to support the important work of the charity.
