Ginger­bread­horses rais­ing funds


‘‘90,000 rid­ing ses­sions each year are pro­vided to 3000 chil­dren.’’

The Wellington branch of Rid­ing for the Dis­abled, based in Kenepuru, is hop­ing peo­ple will ‘bake a dif­fer­ence’ by cre­at­ing gin­ger­bread horses.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion’s Gin­ger­bread Horse Aware­ness Cam­paign wants peo­ple to reg­is­ter as bak­ers, then bake, dec­o­rate, sell and do­nate us­ing the free pack pro­vided.

Start­ing from Au­gust 1, in­ter­na­tional Horse’s Birth­day, bak­ers will sell the bis­cuits be­fore bank­ing the pro­ceeds with Rid­ing for the Dis­abled.

All funds raised from the cam­paign en­able lo­cal RDA Groups through­out New Zealand to con­tinue mak­ing a pos­i­tive dif­fer­ence to the lives of dis­abled chil­dren and adults.

In New Zealand more than 90,000 rid­ing ses­sions each year are pro­vided to 3000 chil­dren and adults with phys­i­cal, in­tel­lec­tual, emo­tional and so­cial chal­lenges.

There are currently 56 RDA Groups op­er­at­ing through­out the coun­try.

Peo­ple can sign up via gin­ger­bread­ and win prizes and re­wards for tak­ing part. Each baker is sent a free pack that con­tains every­thing they need, in­clud­ing a recipe card, horse­shaped cookie cut­ter and biscuit packaging.
