Royal Recognition

Judy Olby is the winner of the prestigious RDA President’s Award for volunteering.

She’s had over 30 years’ dedicated service with RDA. “In the 1980s I taught disabled children in Bradford.

My pupils were invited to join a new RDA group and this is where my journey began.

“My youngest son suffered a major health blow and horses came to the rescue. Through all this, RDA was always challenging me: to be a helper, to train to be a coach, and to join a committee.”

“We developed our own RDA group, adding carriage driving to our skills, and started running RDA holidays.”

“This led to my becoming Regional Chairman for nine years. Currently I run my local group where I am a coach and run holidays in the summer.”
