A disabled horse riding charity in Gilmerton has received a generous offering of four tonnes of wood pellets.

The donation, which is used as horse bedding, is valued at around £1,000 and should provide comfortable bedding for their ten horses for up to six months.

The charity, Drum Riding for the Disabled Association, provides horse riding  for 250 riders from their stables in Gilmerton.

The stable manager,  Cristina Costanza said, “we are really thankful for the donation, these wood pellets will most certainly make mucking out a lot less wasteful and more pleasant.”

The donations of wood pellets, originally produced in  Grangemouth, were donated by wood pellet and briquette suppliers  Verdo Renewables.

UK sales manager Alistair McGlynn said, “we are tremendously impressed with the work carried out at Drum RDA and we wanted to support them in a practical, meaningful way.”
