Ride boosts charity funds
11:27am Wednesday 4th September 2013 in News
A FUN horse ride has raised funds for two local charities.
The event, organised by Ride Yorkshire and hosted by David and Trudy Sanderson, started and finished at Bonfield Ghyll Farm, near Helmsley.
The proceeds will be shared between the Ride Yorkshire Foundation and Ryedale Special Families, who provided some of the marshals for the event, along with Helmsley & District Rotary Club.
Rob Davies is funding co-ordinator for Ryedale Special Families which received £315. He said: “We’re particularly grateful to the Sandersons for donating the portion of funride money earmarked for the excellent refreshments they provided.”
Ride Yorkshire was set up in 2010 and is run by three horse enthusiasts keen to encourage others to explore the Yorkshire countryside on horseback. Part of the money raised for the charity will be used to provide riding and horse-care sessions for people from the Arc Light Centre for the homeless in York.
