Fundraising at Ravelrig

The average annual running costs of Ravelrig RDA is around £90,000. This money is raised through donations, grant applications, horse adoption and sponsorship along with regular fundraising events supported by our volunteers and the local community.

One of the main fundraising events during the year is our Annual Open Day held in early June each year. Other events held throughout the year include supermarket bag packing, book sales and the ever popular annual jumble sale.

If you have a fundraising event you would like to host an event in aid of Ravelrig RDA we’d be delighted to help so don’t hesitate to contact us.

Regular donations

Ravelrig RDA is very fortunate to have a number of patrons who donate money on a regular basis. These ‘Friends of Ravelrig’ include all of our riders (or parents/carers on their behalf) and other individuals who want to support the ongoing operation of our group.

Although the sum of these donations in no way meets the full annual operational costs of Ravelrig RDA – this regular income is vital for the stability and forward planning of the group.

Should you wish to become a Friend of Ravelrig and make a monthly donation towards the running of the group – no matter how small – please contact us.

Alternatively, you can set up a regular donation (or make a single donation) via JustGiving.
