NORTH Wales Freemasons have given £500 to Clwyd Special Riding Centre.

The centre is based in Llanfynydd between Mold and Wrexham.

This money will be used to help with the servicing and maintenance costs of their state of the art, mechanical horse which is used within the ongoing CELT project.

After a successful application to the Big Lottery Fund, work started on Project CELT to develop a new learning and therapy room, barn and round pen. The project will provide a fully accessible service to those with complex needs who may previously have been unable to attend.

Members visited the centre to present the cheque and were treated to a guided tour of the facility. David Thomas, Chairman of North Wales Masonic Benevolent Association, said: “It has been a very humbling experience to see the fantastic work carried out by Clwyd Special Riding Centre for those with additional needs.”

Ann Lambert, Chairman of Trustees at Clwyd Special Riding Centre, said: “On behalf of all the Trustees and everyone who benefits from attending at the Centre for one of the many wonderful activities we are able to offer, I would like to thank North Wales Freemasons for their kind and generous support.”
