Our RDA work relies on volunteers. These are made up of horsey volunteers, people who have never touched a horse but would like to work with the children and everyone in between. Please speak to us if you do feel you have time to help our RDA work in anyway including fundraising or helping with leading riders or just being a point of contact for a particular group.
How our Volunteers help
Volunteers at Kingsmead can take part in a variety of task which may include:
Grooming, tacking up, un-tacking
Assisting in lessons: leading ponies and side-walking with riders
Helping with fundraising events: catering, helping with raffles, tombolas, public collections etc
Assisting at our Open Days and weekend events
We welcome volunteers with time to give during the working day, in the evenings and weekends. No prior knowledge of horse care is required as full training will be given. All volunteers over the age of 16 must undertake a DBS check.
Volunteering can be very flexible from regular sessions to one-off fundraising events. There are so many ways to get involved. Give us a call if you could help - it would make such a difference.
We recognise our volunteers, we couldn't do without them! Every month we give a Volunteer Of The Month Award. Find out more in the Kingsmead Newsletter or speak to Rachael our Volunteers Co-Ordinator
