“We are hugely grateful to Richard King from Tozers for all the hard work he put into helping our small non-profit organization Sirona Therapeutic Horsemanship gain charitable status. Richard went well beyond his initial brief to ensure that our organization got through this process, which we would never have been able to afford to do without his support – thank you Richard!”
