We had a fantastic fundraising weekend here at Ravelrig RDA, with our Tack Sale, Car Wash and Cafe. Thank you to everyone who volunteered their time and energy to help raise a fantastic £770 over the three events. A big thank you to Sally for organising the bumper Tack Sale, which spanned over 3 areas and everything was so beautifully displayed. There’s still more tack to sell so we will be able to raise even more money.
The weather was really kind to us and the bacon rolls and home baking certainly kept the volunteers and customers happy. I don’t know about anyone else who helped on the Car Wash, but today muscles I didn’t know I even had are aching. Who needs a gym membership when you have a car to wash?
We are really grateful to B&Q at Newcraighall who supplied us with buckets and sponges and to Halfords at Straiton who donated the car shampoo.
Did you know it costs us £70,000 to run Ravelrig RDA each year? We raise this money a number of ways, from donations from businesses, the local community, friends of Ravelrig, Grants and our very own fundraising activities.
We are always looking for new ways to raise funds and we are holding a Car Wash and Tack Sale on Sunday 23rd September.
From 12pm – 3pm we will be at Ravelrig RDA, buckets, bubbles and sponges at the ready to wash your dirty car for just £3 and at the same time there will be lots of Tack for sale in the barn.
Each event is being run independently, so it’s fine if you are not interested in Tack and just want your car washing or walk here and just want to peruse the Tack, (we won’t attack you with soap and water!).
There is lots of tack available from full bridles, rugs and lots more, so come along and see what you can pick up.
If you want to help on the day please pop your name on the lists in the Club Room – Thanks!
So, come along and help us raise lots of money for Ravelrig RDA!
