From time to time we have to organise events to raise money for our RDA group. As noted elsewhere we are entirely self funded and thus rely on the kindness of the public and our helpers to raise sufficient funds to continue. Each year we try and have one major fund-raising event to provide the lion’s share of the required total. In the last few years we have had lunches and auctions which have proved very helpful in getting us to our target. In 2007 and 2011 we arranged Fun Rides around Leigh, Alfrick and Leigh Sinton which were some of our most successful events.
We are also occasionally sponsored by third party organisations for which we are very grateful. Currently we are receiving a grant from The Midcounties Co-operative — thank you from all of us.
