We undertake a varied programme of events across the year to raise money for local charities and assist in projects that they are undertaking. A selection of recent activities is provided below:
Supporting Ride High
Our Northampton team has been helping at the local horse riding centre charity, Ride High in Milton Keynes, which supports disadvantaged children.
The team carried our tasks including with cleaning, rubbing down walls and giving them a fresh lick of paint.
Ride High is a registered charity, that was set up nine years ago by Rachel Medill MBE which helps transform underprivileged children’s lives through interaction with the ponies – improving self-confidence, attitude and life prospects.
Open to the public for riding lessons, liveries and parties, the equestrian centre’s profits all go towards supporting the 80 local children that visit every week.
Raising Funds For Children’s Charity
In the summer, we supported a golf day which was set up to raise funds for Steve Burne Rooms. The charity was set up by architect and friend Steve Burne to raise £250,000 to create five new rooms at the Ronald McDonald House, which will be used by the families of poorly children.
The Manchester team completed a gruelling 10k tough runner at Arley Hall to help raise more funds for the charity. Thanks to the amazing amount of money raised, the rooms have already been built and are in use – a fantastic achievement to everyone involved.
