FOUR adorable miniature Shetland ponies have been helping to raise funds on the streets of Cirencester.

The ponies, Lollipop, Petal, Fern and FiFi were helping to attract attention to The Phoenix Children’s Foundation, a charity which provides vital equipment and therapeutic activities to severely ill children.

Miniature Shetland ponies are too small for most children to ride and are primarily used as petting ponies for disabled or sick children in hospices and special needs centres.

The charity is involved with Watershed RDA (Riding for the Disabled Centre) in Cirencester and provides vital equipment for the children’s lessons such as mounting blocks, riding hats and much more.

As well as Watershed RDA several individuals have benefited from their work, all made possible by the generosity of the public.
