Business Involvement

If you work for an organisation, or have your own business, and are looking for a great opportunity to help your local community, then look no further than adopting Cotswold RDA as your charitable partner.

You may want to consider:-

  • Offering a volunteer work day!  There are always plenty of jobs that need doing from painting fences to gardening.
  • Employee flexitime – our After School Club offers two late afternoon sessions from 4.30pm – 6.30pm, perfect fit for your employees who may wish to volunteer after work, or may fit with your volunteer policy.
  • Financial support of specific events
  • Project Sponsorship – We need to raise £230,000 every year to keep operating, which doesn’t include funding for projects that we need to grow e.g. new Tractor to improve the field maintenance that the Midcounties Co-op funded through their Newlands Fun Day.  Our list of projects needing funding is never-ending, but this year we will be launching a fundraising campaign for what is probably our most pressing project. We need to raise an additional  £120,000 for much needed stables for our ponies which will improve their welfare, but also for safety and improve the working conditions for our volunteers.  This has to be our first priority, but following closely behind are projects to build a warm classroom space in the arena gallery, refurbish our toilets and fix the leaking roof.
  • Nominating us as your charity of the year
  • Sponsorship of ponies or equipment – find out more about Pony Sponsorship

Rider: Miriam's Story

Miriam has a hidden condition (hypermobility) and most people would not know just by looking at her how much she struggles with daily life, find out how riding helped Miriam.

Rider: Becky's Story

“Riding gives me an incredible sense of freedom. It’s one of the few times when I am able to get out of my wheelchair. I don’t feel inhibited or confined. It’s one of few times where my wheelchair isn’t the focus and that feels great”.

Rider: Lee's Story

Lee is a 30 year old young man who has a disability which only affects 1 in 5,000 babies born in the UK. Lee has had to cope with operation after operation since the age of 3 months (27 in total).
