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.

They will then send your card in the post.
