Two gardens in Binley were open to the public to raise funds for Andover Riding for the Disabled.

ARD was started in 1972 by Dinah Murdoch and her friends, with a group of children from Icknield School. Over the years, ARD has expanded and now has ten groups in the area. Children from all four of the special schools in Andover ride with ARD, and adult riders come from Enham and from Day Services. Riders range from 2 to 72.

"Elizabeth Maclay does a fantastic job running ARD, along with her team of volunteers. Each year, Daffodil Sunday is held in Binley, enabling people to walk round two splendid grounds and raise funds."

Also raising funds for ARD and Knights Enham School, where she is a Governor, was Julie Stretton. She was collecting sponsorhip for next weekend's London Marathon, and had already raised over £1000, to be split between the two organisations.
