New Forest Rotary Charity Horse or Cycle Ride (or hike)
On Saturday 11th May New Forest Rotary holds its 6th charity fund raising event for those with horses,bikes or for the first time on foot. Circuits of about 8 or 15 miles are mostly off-road on ancient woodland tracks. Very suitable for families. Start (from 9:30) and finish at Burley Park,Burley,New Forest (next to Queens' Head). Nearly 300 took part last year and raised well over Â£5,000. Desmond Swayne the local M.P. opens the event and takes part!
Entrants raise funds through sponsorship for their nominated charity-entry fee Â£10 and Â£20 for families. The Rotary Club runs every aspect of the day which charities can use to generate funds through their supporters: 75% to the charity and 25% to Rotary charities-Gift Aid is claimed. It is hoped to raise Â£10,000 this year with 20 charities taking part.
Those completing the course receive a personalised certificate (it's not a race!). Refreshments and drink will be available. Â The Rotary Club say this is a well run and stewarded event aimed at those who want to support charities whilst having an enjoyable day-they urge you to join them and have FUN!
