Riders from Mitchell House School, chairman of the Cavallo Group RDA Lady P Blackwood and treasurer Beryl McIlwaine were pleased to welcome Jonny Swann to their ride on Tuesday, 2nd June.

Jonny ran the London Marathon in April completing the course in a very respectable time of 3 hours 18 minutes and 41 seconds.

Through sponsorship and the on-line sale of a signed Liverpool Football Club shirt, Jonny raised an amazing £1,500 for the Group.

Also attending the cheque presentation were committee members Moyra Donaldson, Tom McIlwaine, the RDA helpers and Instructor Nuala Belford.

The group would sincerely like to thank Jonny for his sterling effort on its behalf.

The donation is a very welcome addition to the funds needed for the ever increasing cost of caring for the current RDA ponies, Dreamy, Minstrel, Digby and Albert and the retirees.
