Learning Through Horses
Classic Ibiza is delighted to announce that it has partnered with Global’s Make Some Noise to raise funds to support disadvantanged children, young people and their families across the UK.
The money raised by concert goers for Global’s Make Some Noise will support charities across the UK. Small charities like Learning Through Horses, which is based in Edgware and helps vulnerable young people who have been excluded from school or at risk of exclusion, to develop vital life skills through working with horses.
Learning Through Horses helps vulnerable young people who have been excluded from school or are at risk of exclusion to develop vital life skills through working with horses.
The charity runs alternative education programmes to support young people aged 14-25 who have mental health issues, emotional and behavioural problems and/or learning difficulties.
These young people often find it difficult to engage in mainstream education settings and have struggled to access traditional mental health support.
Learning Through Horses teaches young people to care for and train horses, and in doing so they gain life skills and the self-belief they need to re-engage with education, employment or training.
The charity helps young people like Darren, who has autism and experiences high levels of anxiety.
Darren took part in the charity’s employment programme after being excluded from school due to challenging behaviour. He developed a connection with Princess, a very anxious horse with behavioural problems triggered by past abuse.
Darren’s desire to help her helped him to learn leadership skills and to successfully train Princess. His confidence grew during the programme and he learnt to manage his own anxiety. This enabled him to start attending school again, and successfully sit his GCSE exams, something that seemed unachievable to Darren before being helped by Learning Through Horses.
Global’s Make Some Noise is proud to support the charity’s ‘Employment Skills Through Horses’ project, providing employability and life skills training to young people who are, or at risk of becoming, not in education, employment or training.
Classic Ibiza hopes to raise £20,000 for Global's Make Some Noise, through various fundraising activities including a donation of £1 from every programme sold on the evening, a recommended £5 donation from press and guest-list entries, face painting and collection points at all onsite retailers and exit points.
With your help, Global’s Make Some Noise can continue to support projects like Learning Through Horses and many more across the UK.
