Rain or shine kids will ride on thanks to generosity

CHILDREN at Riding for the Disabled (NSW) Tweed Valley Centre will be protected from the hot sun and wet weather thanks to a donor.

The Telstra's Kids Fund donated $1200 to pay for shade cloth to cover the mounting ramp, the ramp helps the children get on to the horse.

"It makes our mounting ramp so much cooler and comfortable for the kids, coaches and the horses," said Penny Baldwin of Tweed Valley riding for the disabled.

Telstra Country Wide area general manager, Sue Passmore, said Telstra was proud of its support of this group.
