Woodchurch Driving Group RDA is a registered charity (1074411) and member of the Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) Incorporating Carriage Driving. The group is based in Woodchurch Kent and offers carriage driving for disabled adults some of whom are wheelchair dependent. Supported entirely by volunteers disabled drivers are provided with weekly driving sessions in a beautiful rural setting. RDA trained and qualified coaches accompany the drivers, encouraging, advising and partnering in regional competitions.
A variety of events are organised throughout the year to raise essential funds. Three fabulous RDA assessed ponies tirelessly give their services each week and deserve and receive a good home and care all year round. Specialised carriages and equipment to facilitate our operations have to be bought and maintained in accordance with RDA health and safety standards.
Generous donations from local organisations have been of great benefit to the continued success of the group.
We are at full capacity for disabled participants at the moment, with a waiting list, but new volunteers are always welcome.
