Thank you to everyone who came along to our first Car Boot Sale for 2022, on 17 July. It was a great day and by the end of it all we had raised £850.00 net profit – which was amazing.
Thank you to our 19 car owners and 1 horse box owner and the stall holders that came along. In addition I would like to extend our thanks to the following Companies and individuals, who either donated items or their time to the success of the event.
Thank you to David Johnson and his team at Aldi Store, Oxgangs, for the delicious burgers – enjoyed by all.

It’s always lovely to receive a card in the post, it is certainly an improvement on a bill or bank statement.
Communication these days is done mostly by text, email or Facebook. Cards and good old fashioned letters are a rare sight to see on your door mat. We are a listed charity on the card website greetingscards.co.uk and benefit every time you buy a card, so everyone is a winner.
Make sure you remember to send a friend or family a birthday card, a get well card, a thank you card or just a hi, how you doing card, it really can make someone’s day.
We recently posted a couple of pictures on our Facebook page of two of our wonderful volunteers accepting awards in 2014.
Chris won the RDA Regional Volunteer of the Year 2014, here he is accepting it from Princess Anne, who is the President of RDA.
That year Cara won the Sportscotland Young Coach of the Year.
Both Chris and Cara are still valued members of the team of volunteers at Ravelrig RDA.

We like to keep a tidy yard, office and club room at Ravelrig, not sparkling because let’s be honest, there’s too much mud and hay for that to be possible. However, Harris was giving us a helping hand or tongue today and giving the window in the office a good clean.
