An equestrian centre is appealing for more volunteers to help disabled people learn how to ride.

West Norfolk Riding for the Disabled Association will be hosting an volunteering day at the Magpie Centre in Wallington Hall, on Wednesday, May 27.

The Magpie Centre has been running for 30 years and has 10 specially horses and ponies of all sizes.

Around 100 people a week enjoy riding or carriage driving lessons at the site.

Running from 9.45am to 1pm, the day will feature demonstrations by RDA riders, plus a display by Mick Ward, the reigning British Para Carriage Driving champion.

The event offers a chance for new recruits to meet other volunteers and find out about the wide range of opportunities available.

The charity relies on volunteers to help with its work.

They are hoping to find people who are willing help with the horses, assist in the office or fundraising activities.

Tea, coffee and a light lunch will be available.

For more information call 01553 810202.

The charity will be taking part in Downham Festival activities on Monday.

A carnival will be leaving Heygates at 12.15 and wind its way through the town to the Howdale Field .

A host of displays, stalls and other atrractions will be on offer at the field on the day.
