Thanet Disabled Riding Centre Receive Charitable Contribution From Proceeds of Kent Coastal Marathon

The proceeds from the Fosters Law Kent Coastal Marathon and Half Marathon 2014, organised by Thanet Roadrunners AC, were recently handed over to the Thanet Disabled Riding Centre.   A cheque for £615 was handed over to the centre by Marathon Race Director, Debbie Hatt.

The Thanet Disabled Riding Centre 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 said, ’the centre is such an amazing place, very humbling, and a very friendly environment. Our contribution will fill up the hay shed to feed all their beautiful horses - but only for one month. This gives you an idea of how much they rely on fundraising and Nora truly is an inspirational lady.’

Nora Setterfield of the Thanet Disabled Riding Centre said, ‘We are so grateful to Thanet Roadrunners in making us their nominated charity for this year’s Thanet Marathon and Half Marathon. The money is invaluable to us, particularly at this time when we are buying in our Winter feed and currently have the additional expense of replacing two of our dilapidated outbuildings.’
