This was a great opportunity for the general public to come along and meet the people behind the charities and organisations. It was equally good for the charities to meet with other charities and it resulted in many agreeing to work together in the future. There was a tremendous sense of community spirit, so congratulations GROUPFEST 2022 organisers.
GordonGroup RDA Chairperson Fiona JD Pearson, said they had handed out several application forms for new volunteers, and are hoping to get some assistance, with some exciting new projects at Gordon RDA, from other charities which were represented at the event. Other discussions were about clients from different charity groups coming along to meet the RDA ponies and perhaps having therapeutic sessions of Equine Facilitated Learning (EFL), which our charity now offers.
“Thank you to everyone involved in GROUPFEST 2022 and special thanks to our wonderfulCoaches Sue and Julia and Co-ordinator Maggi who gave up their time to join me in representing our charity”, Chairperson Gordon Group RDA FionaJD Pearson.
