Dr Dan presents Sarah Robertson and her team from Valley Farm Riding and Driving Centre in Wickham Market with Sport England chequeDan was delighted to officially present Valley Farm Riding and Driving Centre in Wickham Market with a £47,975 cheque kindly donated by Sport England’s Inspired Facilities Fund. The funding will enable Sarah Robertson and her team to surface indoor arenas, create an outdoor arena and provide a shower and toilet unit suitable for disabled riders at the horse riding centre. Valley Farm is one of 350 local community sports groups who have been offered a total of £17.4 million in Olympic legacy funding through the Inspired Facilities Fund.


Prior to presenting the cheque to Sarah Robertson, Dan commended the efforts of the staff and volunteers at Valley Farm, before singling out local Councillor Bryan Hall for praise for his unsung work and support in the local community. Dan recently supported the launch of the Most Active County initiative in Suffolk, which will build on the momentum of this summer’s Olympic Games to inspire more people of all ages to take part in more physical and sporting activity in Suffolk, and is confident that this grant will encourage more local residents of all ages to improve their health and wellbeing by taking advantage of the sporting opportunities that Valley Farm has to offer.
