Tiny’s Green Shed kicks in $10k for Pegasus Riding

In the old country they say “where there’s muck there’s brass”.

Today Chief Minister Stanhope is congratulating Tiny’s Green Shed, the Mugga Lane reusables facility, on writing a $10k cheque for Pegasus Riding for the Disabled ACT.

“This donation will prove help the Pegasus Riding School continue to carry out its excellent programs for people with a disability,” Mr Stanhope said.

“The $10,000 was raised by Tiny’s Green Shed through charity days held on the last Wednesday of every month. I congratulate the staff from Tiny’s Green Shed for their passionate work in supporting the local community.

“They have already donated $10,000 to the Starlight Children’s Foundation Australia and to the McGrath Foundation as well as donating goods to members of the public and community groups such as Karinya House and Cowra Men’s Shed.”

Tiny’s Green Shed has held the charity days since it began operating in January last year, with all the money taken on these days going to charity. The next local charity to benefit will be Marymead.

“I would also like to thank those in the community who have supported this initiative by donating unwanted goods and buying used goods on the Tiny’s Green Shed charity days,” Mr Stanhope said.

What a fantastic effort. It’s nice to see local organisations getting a helping hand:)

Keep up the great work.

It’s great to see a local business supporting local charities.

I had no idea they did this (being a Northsider, I only ever end up at Mitchell) – it’s a shame that these charity days are only on a Wednesday though. If one ever happens on a weekend – the only time I’d ever be able to make it out there – I hope someone gives us a heads up on here!
