We have spaces available on the 23rd December at Sainsbury’s at Murrayfield between 10am and 4pm and on the 31st December at Asda at Chesser between 12noon and 5pm.

Please let us know if you are available to help out at either event.  Email office@ravelrig-rda.org.uk or ring us on 0131 449 7994

Come along and join us to help raise money for Ravelrig

Norton House Work Party

We welcomed a great group of volunteers from the Norton House Hotel at the beginning of December who kindly came out for the day to get stuck in to our garden and stables.  This time of year all the lovely plants are not looking their best and need a good hair cut to take them in to the winter months.

They came armed with cake for the humans and apples for the horses, so as you can imagine it went down very well indeed.

Thank you to Peter, Chris, Frances, Hannah, Lyndsay, Johnny, Brian, Iona, Hollie, Lauren, Daragh and James.  James who is the Norton House gardener made sure the team worked hard in our garden and made everything look gorgeous.  Johnny was a bit obsessed with our power hose but the area outside the stables is gleaming in the sun.  A big thank you for all your hard work and making Ravelrig tidier, and shinier we appreciate your support.

We are so grateful to ALL our wonderful work parties who have been out this year giving us their time and energy gardening, painting, sanding, building and generally putting in a lot of elbow grease.  They are able to do the jobs that we just don’t have time to do and it really makes such a difference.

We have had people from lots of places, including Lloyds, Bank of Scotland, Cadence, HSBC and Green Investment Bank.

If your work offers you community days why not come and help at Ravelrig during 2018.

 

Preparations in full swing

Our Open Day is just hours away now and preparations are in full swing.  Marquees and stalls up, horses being brushed and pampered, paths swept and lots of lovely volunteers helping to get everything organised for our big day.

The weather looks like it might be good to us too tomorrow so we are all looking forward to welcoming you to Ravelrig for lots of fun!
