There are many ways you can help and support the Barnfield RDA
We are totally self-funded which means that continual fundraising is in our DNA. The money we raise from our fundraising activities enables us to provide this amazing service to our riders. For example, our group lessons are heavily subsidized by our fundraising activites. Here is a selection of the ways in which we fundraise.
Barnfield RDA is registered with easyfundraising, which gives you the opportunity to help raise funds for us when you shop online for purchases from groceries to getaways! All you need to do is sign up on the easyfundraising website and nominate Barnfield RDA as your chosen charity. When you shop online with registered shops and sites easyfundraising earns commission your purchases, which they turn into a donation to Barnfield RDA. It’s easy and won’t cost you an extra penny!
Here’s a video from Joan, one of our committee members, explaining just how EasyFundrasing works.

Olivia, one of our volunteers, explains how she helps raise funds for Barnfield RDA:
“I use my A level textiles skills to make a range of craft items that I sell on a stall. I have been to farmers markets, fairs, open days and even a beer festival! My handmade cards are always for sale in the stables’ office. My greatest supporters are Kingston Horticultural Society just down the road from the stables. They have invited me to all of their events and even donate fabric, buttons and ribbons so that I can make more items to sell.
Running the stall gives me the opportunity to meet lots of new people and to tell them about the great work that takes place at Barnfield. 100 % of the money I take goes to Barnfield RDA and last year the money bought the mirrors around the arena.”
