WATCH: The Diamond Centre hosts its annual Christmas show

On the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, the Diamond Centre in Carshalton hosted its annual Christmas show.

The horse-riding centre is a registered charity and gives children and adults with disabilities the opportunity to have regular contact with horses.

Each year, the Diamond Centre hosts a Christmas show where children who attend the centre ride their horses in a musical routine.

Maz Ray, Centre Manager at the Diamond Centre, said that the children who attend the centre find spending time with the horses incredibly therapeutic.

She also praised the fundraising efforts from the community, something that many charities are struggling with.

The Diamond Centre receives no government or local authority funding and relies on donations to fund the £300,000 per year running costs.
