Scropton Riding for the Disabled Centre - Charity Manager's Announcement

Changes at Scropton RDA 

Over the past year we have been making improvements to how we organise and run our centre, and to the opportunities available to our riders and drivers. We have had a number of people take on interim roles during this time, but have been moving towards a more permanent structure that will give us more scope to make further improvements. 

Glynis Dalley has been the Chair of Scropton RDA’s Trustees during this time and has taken on extra involvement in the day to day running of the centre. We are delighted that Glynis has now agreed to become the centre’s Charity Manager. She has a wealth of experience of both our centre and Riding for the Disabled, and will be instrumental in helping us achieve our goals and ambitions. As Glynis will now become a paid employee of the centre, she has stepped down as Chair of the Trustees. We are happy to announce that this role will now be taken by Ema Chillingworth. Ema has been involved as an RDA rider, volunteer and trustee here at Scropton and so is well qualified for this role. We are very excited about the changes being made here at Scropton, and look forward to a great future for everyone involved in the centre. 

Introducing Ema, our new Chair of Trustees

Hi I'm Ema. I have always loved horses and learnt to ride as a teenager.  Unfortunately I had an asthma attack the first time I tried to muck out so I decided owning one myself wouldn't be a great idea.  I am a chartered mechanical engineer and work for one of the smaller railway companies in Derby.  I've been volunteering at Scropton since 2011 and have always really enjoyed helping in lessons and seeing riders progress and get more confident. I became a trustee in 2013.

Towards the end of 2014 I got very ill and had to give up work for over a year.  When I was diagnosed, the doctors recommended therapeutic exercise and I knew exactly where to go.  As an RDA rider for the last year I have had first hand experience of what Scropton offers.  The opportunity to come and enjoy spending time with the horses and people, get a little exercise, achieve something and feel useful volunteering has been, and still is, an essential part of my recovery and means of coping with my illness.  I know how important what we do is to so many people and am committed to making sure we carry on offering a wide range of opportunities to a wide range of people.
