The purpose of the Trust, which was established in 1988, is to distribute funds for charitable, cultural, philanthropic and recreational benefits in our four regions (Canterbury, Nelson, Marlborough and the Chatham Islands) - all of which benefit our quality of life. Our donations in turn, assist thousands of people working in numerous voluntary organisations, to create their own social and cultural dividends thereby rewarding their communities.
Marlborough Group NZ Riding for the Disabled has a tremendous impact on the lives of the children and young adults they help. Teachers from schools, who use their services, regularly comment on how their work helps with children’s’ concentration, communication and self-worth; not to mention muscle tone, balance and co-ordination.
