Arcare Portarlington Community Makes a Difference at Local Equine Rescue Centre

on the Wednesday, November 7, 2018

Over the past month, clients from the Arcare Portarlington Community have been working with Winged Horse, a local equine rescue centre.

Winged Horse, a local not-for-profit, helps horses and ponies in Australia through raising awareness about issues relating to animal welfare, as well as rescuing and rehabilitating horses at risk.

Winged Horse have kindly donated an area of land where clients will work with leisure and health students from training provider Gen U to create a community garden.

While they are only in the planning stages, there have been many bright ideas including involving local primary schools and also selling the produce grown at local markets.

On their first visit to Winged Horse, the group were lucky enough to spend time with some of the locals.

Anne commented, "What an amazing place."

Helen agreed and added, "This is just what I need, I love it."
