Charity Day – The Diamond Centre
Watson & Sole have decided this year as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility commitment to support a local charity. The Charity that the staff chose is The Diamond Centre for Disabled Riders, which provides facilities to benefit disabled children and adults by having regular contact with horses.
The Diamond Centre is a unique establishment for riding for the disabled and is known and respected world-wide. It is the only Centre of its kind in the London Region specialising in all fields of riding for the disabled including; dressage, carriage driving, vaulting and hippotherapy.
The Centre relies totally on donations to survive so we have participated in a number of ways to assist them. We have sponsored a horse called Peaches, who is one of the established horses used by both children and adults. We have raised money through a sponsored walk and last Friday we all spent the day working at the Centre to help with various jobs around the site.
It was very enjoyable and by the end of the day we were all exhausted. If you would like to know more about the Centre then please click on the link below.
