CARERS from a Salisbury old people’s home raised more than £750 for a disabled riding charity running the Salisbury Half Marathon.

Nikki Megarity and Louise Corrie, who both work at Salisbury Manor care home on Wilton Road, completed the 13.1-mile race in aid of the local branch of the Riding for the Disabled Association, the home’s official charity partner.

Ms Megarity said “It’s been great to raise so much money for Riding for the Disabled. “The half-marathon was tough but it was so rewarding. We would like to thank everyone who sponsored us. Maybe next year we could borrow one of the horses – it might make it a little easier.”

The race took place on October 20 but the final fundraising total has only just been achieved.

The Riding for the Disabled Group, which is based at The Pembroke Centre in Wilton, offers horse-based therapies to more than 200 children and adults with physical disabilities and learning difficulties.
