Donations & Fundraising

Donations & Fundraising

We are an entirely self funded organisation that relies on donations and fundraising activities to provide the important services we offer. Your donations, no matter how small might make the difference.

For example, you could sponsor a rider for as little as £200. As a sponsor you will receive our Stratford RDA newsletters and receive regular updates on the progress of your rider. Contact our Sponsorship Secretary at to find out how.

Alternatively you might want to make a donation towards the upkeep of one of the ponies. Our current livery costs are £400 per month per pony so every penny gratefully received will be used towards supporting these costs as well as providing the other services so valued by our riders.

You can either donate a lump sum directly into our bank account or use Give As You Live or PayPal to donate.  Alternatively, you may wish to pay an amount each month,  quarterly, or annually by standing order to spread the donation.  Whatever you decide we will be most grateful.

If you would like to pay by Charities Aid Foundation cheque, please make cheque payable to: ‘Stratford upon Avon RDA’

Note : GiftAid may be applicable to your donations. We ask that you notify us if a UK taxpayer and you are willing to  give us the Gift Aid contribution as well as this could increase your donation meaning that if you give £10 using Gift Aid, it’s worth £12.50 to our charity.  Remember to enter your donation on your Tax Return.  Many thanks
