Charity Ride for The RDA and East Anglian Air Ambulance

Charity Ride for The RDA and East Anglian Air Ambulance

On the 29th May 2022 we were again proud and privileged to support the Norfolk Coast Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) and the East Anglian Air Ambulance for their latest charity ride.

The riders were sponsored to take part in either a 3- or 11-mile ride around the Estate. Both rides consisted of trekking around the scenic routes at the heart of the Estate, through open fields and the bluebell valley. The 11-mile ride started on the same route as the 3-mile before continuing into the lakes and woodland and finishing with a magnificent view of Kelling Hall. There was also the option for those to take part in a ‘Have A Go’ working equitation session for those wishing to test the abilities of themselves and their horses.

The day began a bit ominous looking with overcast conditions and unfortunately did break out into drizzly rain. We were therefore very grateful for everyone who made the day a success including the many volunteers who were located at the various road crossings, guiding the riders and ensuring that everyone remained safe. Prior to the event our team at the Kelling Estate planned the routes, added directional signage and ensured that all paths and tracks that would be used were trimmed for safety.

Those who took part in the day and completed the ride showed support and helped to raise funds for these worthwhile charities, and so were awarded a rosette for their participation. There was also a prize given to the riders who had raised the most amount of money which were kindly donated by other local businesses, Adnams and Marsham Saddlery.

Throughout the day the Walsingham Estate provided a BBQ serving delicious local sausages and beef burgers, and our business, The Holt Garden Centre, provided tea, coffee and cakes, which both riders and spectators purchased with the full proceeds going to the charities.

The total amount raised was £3000, with proceeds shared between the East Anglian Air Ambulance and the Norfolk Coast RDA.

We have been proud supporters of this charity event for the past two years and look forward to helping these fantastic charities in the future.
