Abbie Moorlen, who is Stable Manager at the Avon Riding Centre for the Disabled, is so passionate about her place of work, she’s decided to organise a charity ball to support it. She says, “Working at the Centre means I see first-hand the difference riding and horses can make to disabled people’s lives.” The Avon Riding Centre for the Disabled gives around 200 disabled people a week therapeutic riding lessons, and Abbie’s Pony Prom will help raise much-needed funds.
The ball will take place at Bristol BAWA Club in Filton, which – as well as being a long-standing supporter of the charity’s work – has kindly donated the venue. Says Abbie, “When you spend all day in muddy boots and covered in horse hair, it’s great to have the chance to get into a dress and hit the dancefloor.”
With a 3 course meal, live band, comedy and an auction, it “prom”ises to be brilliant fun. Tickets are priced at £35 and sold in tables of 10 – so bring friends and make a celebration of it. Call 0117 959 0266 to book.
