Huge thanks to Witley Jones Furniture who have just donated and installed some much needed storage in our newly refurbished kitchen/toilet area and don’t they just look beautiful! The company is well known for the design, manufacture and installation of bespoke furniture for schools and educational facilities around the world, so when their Business Development Manager, Dave Manser came to visit us recently after Claire met Tim Whent at Prestbury Village Fair who offered us some lockers for storage.

Callum and Blake arrived bright and early and by the end of the day we have some beautiful new storage units. Dave from Witley Jones said “Having visited Claire and the team down at Cotswold RDA, it was clear to see the positive affect their enthusiasm and dedication has impacted on the lives of people with varying disabilities. I got to witness first-hand the incredible affect their work (and their amazing riding facility) has both physically and mentally, across such a broad age range. Cotswold RDA has to raise £130k per year to cover the running costs and  grants can be difficult to obtain, so it was nice to be able to help out and thank Claire and the team for all of their wonderful work. It was only a small gesture, but I’m sure the lockers will get put to good use!”

Claire Jenkins, General Manager, said “Storage is always a big issue for us – there is never enough and these lockers really do look beautiful. There is a now a solution for storage for our volunteers belongings while they volunteer with us! Everyone here sends their heartfelt thanks for this wonderful gesture from Witley Jones.
