The Rotary Club of Kelso recently enjoyed a visit to Stable Life at Dryden, Ashkirk.

Last year Vanessa Henderson of Stable Life spoke at a Club meeting about the work that the charity do with young people from throughout the Borders.

They provide a safe learning experience for children who are in need of some extra support using the horse and the environment of the stable yard to help young people reach their potential and experience successful confidence building.

The club decided to support this local initiative and subsequently held an Italian Night of great food and good music at Ednam in early March. £750 was raised on the night. The trip this week was to visit the stables, meet staff – both two and four legged – when president John Lafferty presented the cheque to Nicky Glendinning. Club members brought partners and friends along to the event and thoroughly enjoyed a warm and sunny informative evening in a beautiful setting.
