As an important part of the local community, we set aside part of our budget to donate to charities both in Cyprus and overseas.  The charities are nominated by members of the congregation and reviewed by an outreach committee before being submitted to the PCC for authorisation.

Riding for the Disabled, Episkopi

Riding for the Disabled, Episkopi, CyprusAmong the many activities going on in the Western Sovereign Base Area throughout the year are the pony rides given at the Episkopi Saddle Club in Happy Valley for disabled children and young people and adults from the local communities. Over the years, these rides have become a highlight of the riders’ week when they can enjoy the sensation of horse riding for half an hour. Most of the riders, whose ages range from 4 to mid 50s, have physical and/or mental disabilities that in some cases confines them to a wheelchair, or affects their mobility so severely that they are unable to walk or stand without assistance. Nevertheless, when mounted on a horse, their bodies seem to relax and enable them to adopt a more balanced and controlled posture. This relaxation also produces smiles and sounds of joy from the youngsters, whose disabilities have denied them much of the fun and enjoyment they should have had in their lives.
