We have no set target but with your help we would like to raise as much money as possible for this wonderful charity.
“My son has Autism and goes horse riding once a week at Clwyd Special Riding Centre which he always looks forward to. This has many therapeutic benefits to help his condition. Clwyd Special Riding Centre relies on volunteers and charitable donations and helps people of all ages with different disabilities. It would be nice if we could help them out in some way”
