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 gingerbreadhorse.co.nz 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.
