Enterprise Holdings donates £1,000

We received a cheque for £1,000 from Enterprise Holdings for the use of our facilities in the making of a commercial for their newly designed commercial vehicle which has been especially adapted for disabled users. Thank you to Enterprise Holdings.

Successful Summer Fete

We held our summer fete on a rather typical British summer day and raised over £3,200. There were various stalls; one selling cakes, a tombola, ice creams,games, horse riding and a very well supported raffle. We were lucky enough to get Kevin Whately as our opener again this year and one of our regular riders Luke presented him with his opener`s gift. Kevin Whately spent the entire afternoon with us, mingling with everyone and taking a genuine interest in what we have been doing. He noticed that some changes have taken place since his last visit and asked if he could come back again. In fact, it`s in his diary for five years` time.!

Ampthill Lions Donate £1,000

Enormous thanks to Ampthill Lions who chose us as their charity for 2015/2016. They recently presented one of our volunteers, Gillian Smith , with a cheque for £1,000 which they raised through various fundraising activities including a successful charity car wash. This money is especially beneficial because it can be put towards our running costs as it is not ring fenced.
