Riding for the Disabled at St Helens will not only have the funding to be able to build a new shelter, but will be able to add a new horse called Casper to their family thanks to a $10,000 grant.
To mark a 100-year “legacy of giving”, Commonwealth Bank St Helens branch employees nominated the program for a Centenary Grant in recognition of the services it provides to the East Coast community.
Riding for the Disabled allows people with disabilities to challenge and enjoy themselves, and to achieve a sense of achievement through participation in equestrian activities.
St Helens Commonwealth Bank customer service representative Hannah Tibben said the inspiring and far-reaching work of the organisation was a big factor in receiving the grant.
“We’re thrilled to be able to support organisations like the Riding for the Disabled St Helens in the important work they do for our local community,” Ms Tibben said.
