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.

Running for Ravelrig

This weekend it’s the Edinburgh Marathon Festival with lots of different races and events going on over the two days.  We are very proud to say that two of our supporters are running in aid of Ravelrig RDA.

Gillian Hogarth is running the 10km on Saturday 26th May.  Gillian’s daughter Anna is one of our wonderful volunteers and is training to become a coach with us.  Anna is also off to study Veterinary medicine in Edinburgh in September, so will be able to continue her work with us, which are so pleased about.  Gillian is also celebrating her 50th birthday party that evening, so she will have definitely have earned a glass of bubbly!

Our second runner is Katie Allan who is running the half marathon on the Sunday 27th May.  Katie’s sister Emma has been a rider with us at Ravelrig for 14 years and loves it, Katie says that her face lights up as soon as she is on a horse.

Both Gillian and Katie have done a fantastic job training for their events, especially in the cold weather we have had this year, I don’t know many people who would want to go running in the wind and rain!  Thank you to them both for their support and determination, we will be so grateful for the donations and they will go a long way in helping support both our riders and horses here at Ravelrig and allow us to continue helping others.

Good Luck & Thank You from everyone at Ravelrig 

There’s still time to show your support for Gillian and Katie on their Just Giving pages or why not pop along to shout them from the sidelines.
