There are a number of different ways that you can get involved with The Mark Davies Injured Riders Fund.
We have listed just a few ideas of ways in which you could get involved and of course, we are always on hand to help you with preparations.
Sometimes we don’t always get the opportunity to thank people for each and every donation that we receive. So, we would like to reiterate our appreciation now. Without your enthusiasm and support we simply wouldn’t be able to offer our support to those in need. “THANK YOU!”
Attend an Event
We like to have fun whilst we raise money as you’ll know if you’ve been to any of our fundraisers. We have held a Mirror Ball in a 1920’s mirrored circus tent, a wonderful day in a private box at Hickstead and a sumptuous dinner in an exclusive members club in London. We’ve had celebrity question and answer evenings in spectacular venues as well as the chance to get up close and personal with some of our wonderful guests such as Claire Balding. Sign up to our mailing list to be the first to know about future events.
Organise an Event
Sometimes our lovely supporters organise events to raise money for us. We have had a Polo Day and a 5 day Endurance fixture, numerous Winter/Summer Charity Balls and unusual outdoor events organised to raise funds for us whilst having fun at the same time.
