A group of fundraisers will hit the road from Hereford to Barcelona in an old VW van to raise money for an organisation that supports disabled horse riders.

The ‘Wacky Rally, Barmy to Barcelona’ challenge takes place on Thursday, July 5 and sees Rob Barefoot, Paul Moon, Rob Campbell and Leigh Jones make the trip south dressed as characters from the A-Team.

The boys have taken on the four day challenge for close friend Georgina Fowler, 29, who is a rider at the Hereford-based charity 'Ride 2 Achieve'.

'Ride 2 Achieve', based at Red Brook Farm, Hoarwithy, is a not-for-profit organisation which supports disabled horse riders to fulfil their riding potential while also offering therapeutic benefits and provides each member with mentoring to designed to fit their individual needs.

Georgina, who has a very rare condition called centronuclear myotubular myopathy, has been riding since she was two years old.

Linda Fowler, Georgina's mother, said: "'Ride 2 Achieve' is a wonderful organisation run on a shoe string who give one to one help so riders can achieve their dreams."

Through her work with 'Ride 2 Achieve', Georgina has this year qualified for the Riding for the Disabled Association National Championship later this month at the prestigious Hartpury College in Gloucestershire, along with 17 other fellow 'Ride 2 Achieve' riders.

The group has sent the most riders to the national competition, despite being the smallest group involved.
