Charity Update: January 2018

 

2017 saw visitor numbers increasing to 8600+ compared to 7500 in 2016.

Our activities are very popular and well subscribed.

Cedar Tea Room is now established with regular clientele

As local authorities cut back on the services they are able to offer, more people with disabilities and special needs are turning to the Centre for help and support and their numbers are expected to continue to rise in 2018.

Unfortunately success comes at a price. The charity had a deficit of about £10,000 for the financial year ended 31st December. 

Operating costs were about £86,000 and Income about £76,000. The Annual Report with final figures should be published in April

 

RDA Riding Update from Pat our Head of Riding

In December 2017 we said goodbye to Rory & Gorda who have gone back to their owners for a well deserved rest, they will be missed by all. Sparky a 7  year old Connemara has joined our team and is proving to be a lovely RDA pony. We are happy to say that we are able to keep our riding fees the same as for 2017 and look forward to welcoming new riders in 2018.

 

Animal and Garden Update from Susan our Centre Supervisor

The year to come:

Winter is sprangled, frost covered sheep and crisp crunchy grass. Hungry mouths abound-all the time. It is hard work and rewarding in equal measure.

Spring is full of promise, everything is burgeoning. Pear trees in blossom and animals sporting sleek summer coats or new featherand down-all is green and clean.

Summer is allotment time. Lots of vegetables are growing, for sale in our shop and for use in our kitchens.

Autumn means preparation for the harsh months to follow. Anials are round and fluffy. The gardens spent and scruffy. We need to get ready - for Winter.
