Rumble in the Jumble

Thank you to everyone who came out to help set up the Jumble Sale on Friday afternoon and in to the evening, to those of you who donated items to the sale and to all the volunteers who helped out on the day.  THANK YOU!  We could not have done it without your time and hard work.

We had a great day on Saturday and raised over £2,000 and hope to raise more with items we can sell on eBay in the future.

Thank you again!

Thank you

Thank you for your help

 

Jumble Sale

Cleaning and sorting doesn’t need to be just for Springtime, why not take the opportunity to have a look in your wardrobe, drawers, cupboards, dark corners, attics and garages and think do you need or use everything you have?

Our Jumble Sale is on the 27th January and we are looking for donations to make it a great event.  Please be aware we are unable to accept any electrical goods but clothes, bric-a-brac, tools, tableware, books, CDs or anything else you really don’t need any more.

We raised £2,000 in 2017, let’s see if we can match that or better still beat it!

Thanks

 

Packing some cash!

Thank you to everyone who volunteered at one of our bag packing events over the Festive period.  We were at Sainsbury’s at Murrayfield on the 23rd December and Asda at Chesser on the 31st December and lost count how many bags we helped pack.

Thank you for volunteering, over the two events you helped raise £1,790 for Ravelrig!!!  So very well done!

Sparkling Time!

Thank you to everyone who helped with our Christmas Open Day preparations and those who helped on the day, without you all we couldn’t have done it, so thank you!!

Thank you also to those who came along on the day, we had a great time and we hope you did too.

Santa rode in with his elves on horseback after having a tour of Balerno.  Settling in to his cosy grotto he managed to meet all the children and make sure he had a note of exactly what they wanted for Christmas, so he wouldn’t forget!

With the wonderfully tasty homebaking, warming homemade soup and hot dogs no one went hungry.  Craft and game stalls, live music, our Tombolas and raffle went really well and not forgetting our pony rides.  There was lots of fun for everyone.

With your help and support we raised over £1,500 for Ravelrig, so a huge big sparkling Thank you from us all!

Here’s some photos from the day.

It’s our Christmas Open Day!

With lots of tinsel, baubles, glitter and trees appearing around Ravelrig stables, it must mean one thing….It’s our annual Christmas Open Day on Sunday!!!!!

Santa will be riding in on horseback and will be able to meet you all, to make sure you have been good this year.

With our wonderful cafe with homemade soup, hotdogs and hot drinks, stalls to get your Christmas shopping sorted, games and crafts and not forgetting pony rides.

It’s all go at the stables, so make sure you pop along on Sunday 26th November from 12pm – 3pm.

See you there!

A Best Seller!

Thank you to everyone who donated books, volunteered their time to help and those of you who came along and bought a book or two over the weekend at our Book Sale.   The Gyle Shopping Centre was lovely and busy and the book boxes were certainly lighter when we dismantled the stand compared to set up.

Everyone’s help and support helped us raise over £900 for Ravelrig, which is £300 more than the previous sale, so a big THANK YOU!
