The Berwickshire Group RDA (SC 028616) is run entirely by volunteers.
Donations and Fundraising
Berwickshire Group RDA actively fundraise, we hold three coffee mornings annually, in Duns, Eyemouth and Coldstream, and take a stand at Duns Show. We do supermarket bag packs when dates are available, hold concerts, bingo nights, quiz nights and various sponsored events. You can help us by shopping online using easyfundraising, drop off your unwanted clothing to the rag bag collecting point at the school, recycle stamps, ink cartridges or mobile phones, adopt one of the Groups horses or collect charge in jars or tubes of smarties. We have a justgiving page and you can text donations to to BRDA14 on 70070.We have 5 extremely brave people who are going to abseil down the Forth Rail Bridge and Lizzie Mortimer who is going to run the Edinburgh marathon, so please support them.
All donations are valued by us. If you are a U.K. tax payer, please remember that you can gift aid your donation: currently the Government gives us 25p for each £1
The Group needs £20,000 each year for the upkeep and welfare of the horses, to maintain the building and equipment, to enter competitions, and to enable us to provide free lessons to the 45 adults and children that come to the school each year. We are always looking for ways of improving facilities to provide the best possible experience to our clients. The current project is to install a para rider hoist, to enable everyone to safely mount the mechanical horse.
The group relies on fundraising, donations and grants, and thanks all those who help in any way.
