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 chooses Ravelrig

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.

Thank you!

If you want to become a member of the Coop at Currie just ask at the till point for a form.

 

Ravelrig Presentation

We will be holding a presentation at the Currie Bowling Club on the 26th & 29th April to tell you all about our plans for next year and beyond.

The presentation will also give us the opportunity to tell you more about the Rider development, the Volunteers and Coaches and the Indoor Arena Development Funding.

There will be opportunities to ask questions at the end of the evening to the room or informally with the trustees or coaches.

We will be asking what you would like covered during the presentation over the coming weeks and also be asking you to confirm your attendance.

Hope to see you all there.
