Riding school needs your vote!
Stepney Bank Stables, a BHS approved riding school in Byker, Newcastle, is through to the semi-finals of The National Lottery Awards 2010 and needs votes to get through to the final round.

The riding centre is one of only 10 projects in the country and the sole entry in the north-east to make it through to the semi-finals in the Best Education Project Category.
This project is the only major inner city community horse projects and has proven the value of the horse as a tool to motivate, educate and pass on key social skills.

The stables’ project has opened doors and broken down barriers to a section of the community where crime and apathy are high. Their project has allowed many individuals from a disadvantaged background to learn new interests and gain self esteem whereby they are able to seek employment or further training.

Voting for the semi final ends at midday on Friday 18 June.
