Pegasus’ annual Scholarship Awards Evening was held on Thursday, 20 February with 15 scholarships presented for 2020. An evening of celebration and gratitude, the Pegasus Scholarship Awards Evening is a favourite in the Pegasus calendar; providing a fantastic opportunity for the lucky scholarship recipients and their families to meet their generous donors.
Now in its seventh year, the Pegasus Scholarship Program allows individuals living with a disability to participate in Pegasus’ therapeutic horse facilitated programs for one year. The Program was originally set up following introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), to help the many families who are unable to access funding through the NDIS to participate in Pegasus’ programs.
Pegasus’ Executive General Manager, Matthew Watson, recognises the incredible generosity of the local community. “An incredible gift to give, we cannot thank the individuals and business sponsors enough for supporting our Scholarship Program,” “With the support of our local community, 15 individuals have been given the opportunity to participate in Pegasus’ therapeutic programs this year, an opportunity they may never have otherwise had”.
