LOCAL bikers have raised money for a therapeutic group for children with disabilities.

Highland Classic Motorcycle Club treasurer John Williams and secretary Malcolm Davidson presented a cheque for £100 to Forres, Nairn and District Riding for the Disabled (RDA) chairwoman, Sonia Howell, at the charity’s temporary premises in Miltonduff.

John said: “The money was raised at last year’s Loch Ness Rally. It will be used for a horse mounting block.”

RDA spokeswoman Zillah Jamieson confirmed fundraising is critical to maintaining their activities.

She said: “We are absolutely delighted and thankful for this contribution given our position as the only RDA Group in the UK to not charge either riders or schools.”

RDA’s operational costs have risen to nearly £700 per week.

Additional investments, including additional riding hats and other

equipment required to meet Covid regulations, have added to the overheads giving the charity an annual fundraising target of £22,500.

People can make donations via email at forresnairnrda@gmail.com or over the phone on 0777 9082202.
