Peaches & Ice cream, the quintessential summer treat! This weekend at the Aberfoyle Farmers Market we are holding our 2nd annual Peaches & Ice Cream fundraiser for Sunrise Therapeutic Riding Centre (http://www.sunrise-therapeutic.ca/). Make a donation to Sunrise and receive a delicious bowl of Warner’s peaches with Kawartha Dairy vanilla ice cream. This was a really popular event last year that raised money to assist Sunrise achieve their goals. We are excited to be hosting this event again.
Sunrise is a very important member of our community and provides accessible equestrian based experiences for people of all abilities.
Sunrise’s mission is:
“To develop the full potential of children and adults with disabilities and lead them closer to independence through a therapy, recreation, horse riding, life skills and farm related activity program.”
