Welcome from everyone at the Magpie Centre!

As a small independent charity the Magpie Centre is dependent upon the volunteers from the local community who come and give their time in many different ways.

Ways you can help:

  • In lessons leading the horses or walking beside them
  • Helping with carriage driving
  • Maintaining the fields, fences and buildings
  • Fundraising and office work and
  • Helping at fundraising events.

If you could spare a few hours each week or maybe just at our events – supplying cakes, making tea, putting up and taking down marquee – we would be happy to welcome you. Your time would help us to continue making a real difference to the lives of the riders and carriage drivers who use our Centre.

Our volunteers are always busy!
