The Magpie Centre has also been boosted by a £2,500 donation from a pub.

The Jolly Brewers in Shouldham Thorpe donated £2,500 to the Magpie Centre home of West Norfolk Riding for the Disabled Association, Wallington Hall,South Runcton.

The money was raised via a gentleman’s evening with raffle and an auction.

Organiser Brian Nelson said: “I have been running these evenings for the past seven years, attended mainly by local businessmen, their clients and friends. Everyone seems to enjoy them and I am delighted to be able to help the Magpie Centre.”

The money was handed over during a presentation.

Rider Aynsley Calvert, who has represented the centre at national level, said: “This is a brilliant amount, and helps to keep the Magpie Centre running. Riding at Magpie has given me confidence and improved my communication skills. There are so many things that people with our disabilities can’t do – but riding is something we can do and can all enjoy.”
