As an independent local charity we have to be self financing and we rely upon donations, sponsorship and fund raising. Many local companies, organisations and individuals have been generous to us and we welcome any help that you can give us. We need to raise £40,000 each year to continue.
If you are organising an event to raise money for a charity please consider us. We would be very grateful and we would supply any promotional material.
We do have some regular donors: the Grandfather of one of our small riders has a standing order to us and Derry Jones plays the piano in local pubs and Betty's tearooms and donates his takings.
Some people have run marathons and others have done long walks. Some villages have fetes and donate the funds taken. The Azerley estate and Knaresborough gun club have had clay pigeon shoots and raised a lot of money for us. There are all sorts of ways that you can help us.
We are especially keen to get sponsors for our 16 rides. A ride will be named after its sponsor and we have boards in the indoor school and on the stable yard on which we record sponsor’s names. These boards are seen by 160 volunteers, 100 riders and their carers and all visitors to the commercial stables.
Currently we have named sponsors from the Rotary Club to the Knaresborough Mummers and several individuals between. If you would be interested in publicising your company in this way, please do contact us.
