Appeal For A New Home
Berwickshire Social Enterprise Eat Sleep Ride CIC is hoping for a New Year miracle
A local social enterprise, Eat Sleep Ride, has been given less than a month to find new premises to run their equestrian charity. Failing to do so will result in a loss of jobs and much needed therapy for those with mental health and social impairments.
For the last year, the social enterprise has been offering its unique therapy of horse riding to develop self-esteem, communication and social skills in those who need help. Unfortunately, they were given notice to leave their current location on the 24th December, and now have a matter of weeks to find a new place to house their 12 horses and run their lessons.
Danielle Mckinnon, the Director at Eat Sleep Ride C.I.C, said this.
“Having spent many months creating jobs and investing in the farm, it is a great shame that we are now having to leave our home and start again. Unless we find a new place fast, we will no longer be able to offer the education and therapy that has changed so many lives.
The team and I have created something special here and we need your help to keep the project alive. We have a vison for the future, and plans to build on what we already have, all we need is a new location to make this a reality.
So please, if you have a new location that you think will suit us, then get in touch. If you share our vision and want to help, then please get in touch. Together we can build a better future and grow the economy whilst giving back to the surrounding communities.”
Michael Gilmartin whose son currently takes lesson had this to say.
“My son has been attending Eat Sleep Ride for several months now and it has had a noticeable impact on him. He has greatly enjoyed the friendships that he has made and looks forward to the lessons each week. Not only has he benefited from the social aspect, but the riding itself has strengthen his core and helped with his disability.
It will be devastating if they can’t find a new place and are forced to shut their doors for good.”
The group are actively seeking a new place and welcome anyone who can help to contact them at email@example.com
