‘WITHOUT OUR VOLUNTEERS WE WOULDN’T BE ABLE TO PROVIDE SUCH A FIRST CLASS AND NEEDED SERVICE.’
It is through the commitment of our volunteers that Penniwells enables people with disabilities to ride for benefits to their health and wellbeing, and to achieve their goals.
Due to Covid we are not yet taking on new volunteers but please do still apply with the application and as soon as we are able to we will contact you to come up and meet us. (Updated 23/03/21)
We rely on the input and support of volunteers – not just those who help with riding – but also fundraisers, treasurers, administrators or simply to help with a bit of DIY.
We need volunteers with a wide range of skills to make RDA groups work – people who want to share in the fun and excitement and be part of the environment that bring horses and people together for such great benefit.
If you wish to volunteer for Penniwells, please fill the attached application form and send it to us.

DUKE OF EDINBURGH AWARD SCHEME:
Please note at this time we are only offering D of E to those who are already volunteering regularly at the centre. So if you know you are planning to take this on next year why not join our team before you start so you know you can enjoy your time volunteering at Penniwells RDA having already shown your commitment and completed any training.
General site maintenance, handy jobs, mechanical jobs, decorating, plumbing, fencing & technical help are all areas we require volunteer help – If you think you can provide this please apply to Penniwells RDA Centre with a CV showing your skill set.
You don’t even have to touch a pony if you would rather not!
