Sussex Community Foundation Grant from William Reed Fund

April 3, 2018 at 6:04 pm

The William Reed Fund, via Sussex Community Foundation, have given us a fantastic grant of £3,500 to cover the cost for one year of the instructors for the four Sussex schools we teach each week.  This will make a tremendous contribution to our costs as although our schools pay a fee, this does not cover the cost of the instructors, nor the cost of the vets, farriers, insurance, and all the other expenses we have.

William Reed Business Media is a global company with Group Headquarters in Crawley, West Sussex.  Through the William Reed Charitable Fund, they provide financial support to social welfare projects in conjunction with charities and community groups based in Sussex and the surrounding areas. They work in partnership with the Sussex Community Foundation who meet with a committee of employees once a quarter. The SCF helps them to choose suitable projects and distribute the money for maximum benefit.

We are very grateful that this year they chose us as one of their beneficiaries, and we have invited them to come along and see us in action one day.

The Royal Warrant Holders Association have generously donated £1,350 for a saddle and bridle for our riding/driving Dales pony Coke.  The husband of Katie Giddings, one of our trustees, is a member of the association through his business and very kindly applied for this grant for us.  A representative from the RWHA will be visiting us to see Coke in action in June.

£10,000 donation from Copthorne Golf Club

January 11, 2018 at 5:27 pm

In November 2016, the incoming Ladies and Gentlemen’s Captains of Copthorne Golf Club chose us as their Charity for their year of office.  They hold various fundraising events and challenges throughout the year, and we were absolutely delighted to be told in December 2017 that they had raised a fantastic £10,180.80 for us.

Dame Judi Dench came to receive the cheque in early January, and a number of members of the Club came to meet her and hand over the cheque.

We were quite amazed by the generosity of the members of Copthorne Golf Club, and would particularly like to thank Sandy Flynn, the Ladies Captain, and Paul Delaney, the Men’s Captain for the year, whose enthusiasm and efforts to drum up support helped to raise this record sum.
