Making Cookies - Junior Learning Hub 2

This week Ngaires wonderful mum helped us bake 120 'Gingerbread horses' for us to ice and
sell. We are selling them for $2 each and  all the proceeds go to New Zealand Riding for the 
Disabled (RDA). Since 1962, NZ Riding for the Disabled has provided opportunities for 
anyone with a disability to enjoy safe, healthy, stimulating, therapeutic horse riding and horse 
related activities in New Zealand. Each year 55 RDA groups assist over 3,200 Riders 
throughout the country, helping to change lives for the better. To find out more about the 
vital work we do in the community, and to make a donation, please visit or

Yesterday they had great fun icing them and Xanthea went to Riding for the 
Disabled and the
leaders there were very excited to hear we are all supporting them. If you would like a biscuit,
please come into hub 2 with a $2 donation.
