'RAISING THE ROOF'
PLEASE CAN YOU
We have a real challenge!
Our dear ponies who help so many people are living in stables
with asbestos roofing that's over 50 years old.
The time has come... We have to replace it!
The asbestos was installed in the 60’s and is getting close to the end of its life.
It is currently covered in moss, which is holding it together.
This will be a significant investment and we have a realistic budget based on quotes received. Whilst we sharpen our pencils on the quotes, we are starting our plans towards raising the money from multiple sources.
As a local charity, supporting local people, it would be great to get the project started with financial help from local businesses who would like to join the communal effort to fund the solution.
We promise that any business that helps us by supporting this essential project, from £500 upwards - will benefit from free thankful publicity on our Broadlands RDA website, plus our social media.
If you know anyone who would be interested in supporting this project, please get in touch with Rich - our fundraising trustee at email@example.com
PLEASE CAN YOU HELP BY DONATING
TO HELP US BUY THESE ESSENTIAL
80 metres of guttering at £5.00 per metre
15 lighting units at £28.00 each
80 cement roofing sheets at £35.00 each
What our team has achieved over the years is amazing!
Thanks to everyone who has donated.
With your help we have now completed the Riding School redevelopment by replacing the old asbestos roof and building a new viewing gallery.
But we still need more help.
The new Riding School roof was completed in June 2018. And the new Viewing Gallery was officially opened by Alastair Stewart on 13th July this year.
Fundraising for the Future
To continue enriching lives through horses Broadlands, Medstead still desperately needs your help and support.
It's not just about repairing old outdated facilities. We have a far greater vision.
It's all about redeveloping and maintaining essential facilities and new services to enable us to offer help to an increasing number of people in the future.
WE CAN'T THANK ALL OF YOU ENOUGH FOR DONATING THE FUNDS AND TO OTHERS FOR THEIR TIME AND SKILLS TO BRING OUR OLD LOOS UP TO DATE.
At last, after years of desperaty needing a renewal our riders and volunteers now have an up-to-date riding school toilet with special facilities.
It has made life at Broadslands RDA so much more comfortable!
If you were one of the generous people that helped fund this new build please get ready for an 'Opening Invitiation' to come and see what you helped to create!
There are so many items we still need purchased at Broadlands to support our riders and drivers.
