Jumbo cheque

Barbara popped down to the Corslet Place Coop on Saturday to collect the jumbo cheque for the money raised over the last few months through their community fund.

Now all we need is a big wallet to take it to the bank in…

Thank you to everyone who joined the Coop and selected to support Ravelrig, this is a fantastic amount which will go a long way in helping to support the horses and riders.

Community Support

There has always been a sense of community in this part of Edinburgh.  People communicating, supporting and helping each other to make our community better for everyone and it’s a lovely feeling to be part of it.

The Coop in Corslet Place, Currie has been a wonderful supporter of Ravelrig for the last year while we have been part of the Coop’s Community Local Fund.   Kerry, Scott, Craig and all their team have been out to see us a few times and even joined in our Summer Open Day.

Being one of the three local charities the store has supported has been an honour, but has unfortunately come to an end.  We will apply for the next round but what we have achieved this time is fantastic and it will really make a difference and allow us to develop and support our volunteer coaches.

Some of the Saturday volunteers will be heading to Corslet Place Coop on Saturday 24th November to collect our final payment cheque from the store’s team so we are really excited about that.  Pop along about 3pm if you want to join in the fun.

 

 

Coop Community Fund

We have just 3 months remaining as one of the Co-op’s three charities they are supporting from the Corslet Place store in Currie.

The Community Fund is a great way to support your chosen charity as they donate 1% of your Coop purchases directly to us and you get 5% back, so we’re all winners.

We are hoping to raise £1,000 to allow us to develop and support our wonderful volunteer coaches who work so hard for us here at Ravelrig.  By raising this money it will ensure regular riding lessons for everyone.

It costs us approximately £70,000 to keep Ravelrig running, looking after the horses and stables so this is a great way to help us with no cost to you.

There are a couple of ways you can become a member of the Coop and it’s just £1.

  • Pop along to the Corslet Place branch in Currie, they will have application forms at the till

or

  • go on line at coop.co.uk/membership

Remember to select Ravelrig RDA as your chosen charity.

Thank you

As this is a “local” Community Fund if your postcode is not local to Corslet Place, Ravelrig unfortunately will not come up as one of your choices.  We are trying to confirm with the Coop whether if you join in store this is different.

Thank you!

The Coop at Currie has chosen Ravelrig RDA to be one of their chosen charities to benefit from their Membership Scheme.  If you become a member at the Coop in Currie then every penny you spend on their own brand products, raises funds for Ravelrig.   Yes it’s really that easy.

Buddy with Chloe and Toby with Maggie popped down to the Currie store to meet Kerry and Scott again, along with some customers to say a big thank you to everyone.  We are all incredibly grateful to the staff and customers for their support.

Coop Visit

We got a visit from Scott and Kerry from the Coop store in Currie to tell us some exciting news about how we have been chosen to benefit from their charity scheme linked to their Membership Scheme.

More exciting news to follow but Buddy surely liked what Scott and Kerry told him!
