Table Top Sale Success

Our fund raising table top sale held on 17th Nov was a great success. We had 20 tables and lots of bargains were to be had (I came away with 2 stable rugs, a pair of gloves, a dressage numnah, a lead rope and a head collar at a fraction of the new price).

Many thanks to everyone who had tables, provided cakes, provided raffle prizes and all the volunteer helpers on the night setting up the hall, running the raffle,setting up our display, manning the entrance and serving the teas and cakes.

We raised over £300 which will ALL go directly on materials and equipment hire to help us maintain the bridleways.

Couple of pictures below plus a reminder of what our small group has achieved.

Quiz and Curry Night – another success

A great night was had by all at our fund-raising Quiz and Curry Night. We had 13 teams and managed to raise over £400. This money will allow us to take on some urgent drainage improvement jobs over the next few months (all the money raised goes directly on materials and equipment hire).

Many thanks to all involved and to everyone who bought tickets and raffle tickets. Your support is much appreciated.

A special thanks to our sponsors (County Treks and Clare), to Jo for the catering and making the very yummy curries and to all who helped with question rounds and running the evening (including Pete, Clare, Chris, Jo, Yvonne, Olwen, John).

Fun Ride Success Despite The Weather

The forecast for the fun ride day was not good but the ground conditions were OK on the route and in the start field so we decided to go ahead. The rain did put people off coming out on a fun ride but we still managed to raise over £200 profit. All the riders who came had a great time and were very complementary about the route and organisation in general and we hope to do similar again next year (hopefully with better weather next time).

Fun Quiz Night Success

All our labour for bridlepath improvements is voluntary but we need funds to purchase materials and also hire of equipment e.g. digger.  It is now looking increasingly unlikely that we will get any real financial support via the council so we decided to run a fun quiz night to try to raise some funds.

After an initial panic that we would not sell enough tickets we ended up with almost more people than we could cope with (90+ and 14 quiz teams).  The evening was a great success and most importantly has managed to raise some vital funds which we can now call upon to undertake priority work.  Jo and Chris organised the evening with support from other volunteers in the group (including Yvonne, Gill, Clare, Pete).

 

Many thanks to everyone who supported this event and helped raise some funds.

We will provide an update on the amount raised shortly.
