Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) is today celebrating after being presented with a cheque for £230, 758.44 by The Daily Telegraph. One of the paper’s chosen charities for its Christmas Charity Appeal, RDA received the cheque at a special reception in London marking the end of the campaign.
Daily Telegraph Editor, Tony Gallagher presented the cheque to RDA rider, Maddy Adams. Addressing representatives from all three charities, Gallagher praised RDA for the scale and breadth of its activities, which provided such strong and inspiring stories for telegraph readers.
RDA Chief Executive, Ed Bracher said: “Everyone at RDA is hugely grateful to readers of The Telegraph for their generosity and support over the Christmas period. We were delighted to be selected as one of the beneficiaries for this year’s appeal, and the money raised is amazing. Thanks to The Telegraph, we will be able to provide targeted support to help RDA Groups expand their activities and provide opportunities for more people to benefit from our activities. Many Telegraph readers have also responded to the campaign by offering support and time to their local RDA Group, which is really appreciated. Thanks so much to everyone involved – it has been a fantastic experience for all of us.”
