Fullers Support the Windsor and Ascot Driving Group Charity16 Mar
The Windsor and Ascot Driving Group is a charity based in Ascot. The group was started over 40 years ago. It is a member group of Riding for the Disabled (RDA).
The group offers carriage driving to individuals who have a wide range of disabilities, including wheelchair users, who may not be able to ride but love to be involved with a sport involving horses. The participants range in age from 10 – 76.
The Group owns a minibus which is adapted to carry wheelchair passengers and is used to transport some of their participants from home to their driving sessions. The bus is also used during sessions so that they can change drivers without returning to base. They also use the bus for attending the Windsor Horse Show and other local shows, and for social events such as trips to Hickstead, Olympia and The Windsor and Ascot Driving Group Christmas Party.
Sarah Clunie, Group Organiser, The Windsor and Ascot Driving Group explains; “Fullers Logistics has supported our Group for over 30 years by providing all of our diesel and paying for the annual MOT, servicing and any repairs. We are a small charity and this support makes a huge difference – without it, we might not be able to afford the running costs of the bus. This would have a real impact on some of our participants who rely on the bus for transport, as it’s the highlight of their week and might be their only day out”.
Russell Cowley, Transport Managing Director, Fullers Logistics Group, comments “We are very proud to support The Windsor and Ascot Driving Group and is a cause that is very important to the local community. It is imperative that many people, who would otherwise find it impossible to pursue an outdoor activity, have benefited from the recreational and social therapy that this pastime provides.”
