National Volunteers' Week coincided with a celebration to mark over 20 Years of support to RIDEAWAY Group / Strathearn RDA, from one of our wonderful volunteers, Magdalene. Magdalene joined Strathearn RDA group many moons ago, as the requisite Physiotherapist Volunteer and since then she has given invaluable support as a regular session helper and Trustee. She is now moving on to pastures new near family in England, but she is sure to seek out the nearest RDA group and offer her help!
In the true spirit of the fantastic volunteers, riders and ponies at RIDEAWAY, we all enjoyed marking her final session as a volunteer with a presentation of her 20 Years Service Certificate and RDA pin. Margaret, our 'coffee and cake fairy' volunteer, who
regularly bakes all sorts of goodies and provides coffee for the volunteers, produced a wonderful horseshoe cake to mark the occasion.
What better way to celebrate National Volunteers' Week!
