On 9th December 2014 the South Shropshire Planning Committee, following recommendations from Shropshire Council Planning officials, approved plans for the Cavalier Centre with an indoor 70m x 30m arena, an outdoor arena and an all weather track, providing facilities for disabled people of all ages to take part in Therapeutic riding, vaulting, hippotherapy (physiotherapy on horseback) and carriage driving.
Fundraising is now underway with the K12 Challenge ……Kids with 12 Months to Complete their Challenge an initiative involving individuals or groups of young people doing sporting challenges to raise £1,000 each with the aim to raise the first £100,000 toward the estimated £1.8m funding requirement. The money raised by this initiative will provide the necessary kick start to seek other match funding, sponsors etc. and has already raised over £90,000 to date. www.k12challenge.co.uk
There will be a lot of work involved in completing funding applications and submissions but there is a huge groundswell of support for the project now and there are a lot of people coming forward to offer support and practical help.
