Dundee Cheque Handover to The Brae Riding for Disabled

Solicitors and staff in the Digby Brown Dundee office were overwhelmed to present a cheque for £10,391.68 to the Brae Riding for the Disabled.

Our Dundee office chose The Brae as their charity partner for 2016 and were honoured to support this local charity over this last year.

Through the commitment of staff and volunteers, The Brae has been providing horse riding therapy for disabled adults and children from Dundee and surrounding areas since it opened in 2008.  By empowering people affected by an accident or serious illness to ride a horse offered a challenge and a chance to regain mobility and a sense of achievement.

Some of the fundraising highlights have included a charity quiz night where the office raised over £2,000, taking on the ultimate challenge of the Tough Mudder, 5k Santa fun run along with hot lunch and bake sales.

Robert Kernaghan, Solicitor and Partner in our Dundee office said: “Having seen the inspirational work The Brae do with local disabled adults and children in Dundee and the surrounding area, our office was incredibly motivated to get out there and fundraise for this local charity.

“Jennifer Watson from our office was the charity ambassador and put together some fantastic fundraisers for the charity.

“We are absolutely delighted to hand over a cheque for over £10,000 which represents our fundraising efforts throughout 2016 and we look forward to continuing to support the charity over this coming year.”
