Ward Gethin Archer Successful Fundraising for Local Magpie Centre

Following their participation in the Downham Market Dragon Boat Race in August, and fundraising activity for the West Norfolk Riding for the Disabled Association, Ward Gethin Archer were delighted to present a cheque for £250 to WNRDA charity.

Their donation will go towards hay for the 14 horses at The Magpie Centre, near Downham Market, who munch through £6,000 worth of hay each year!
