Thanet Disabled Riding Centre Chosen as Recipient Charity for the Fosters Law Kent Coastal Marathon

Thanet Disabled Riding Centre has been chosen as the recipient charity for the Fosters Law Kent Coastal Marathon and Half Marathon to be held on Sunday 7th September 2014.  The prestigious event, organised by Thanet Roadrunners Athletics Club will see 700 runners compete in a challenging but very scenic coastal route across the beautiful coastline of Thanet. 

£1 from every entry will be donated to Thanet Disabled Riding Centre. The centre was  set up  by Nora Setterfield 38 years ago and is a self contained riding school in the grounds of Maurice House, Broadstairs. The centre caters for approximately 60 disabled people each week, seeing a large proportion  coming from local special needs schools, such as The Foreland, Bromstone, St Anthony's and the Royal School for the Deaf in ,Margate.   

Debbie Hatt, Race Director for the races said, ‘Every year the club votes for a local charity to support.  This year we are pleased to choose the Thanet Disabled Riding.  The charity does an incredible amount of good for the disabled across Thanet and we are pleased to support them’.

Andrew Barnar, Treasurer for the Thanet Disabled Riding Centre said, ‘We are very appreciative of being chosen as the official charity for this race. Our annual running costs are around £40,000 and these are met entire by generous local support, our own fund raising and nominal riding fees.’
