[A] ceilidh held in support of Carlisle Riding for the Disabled Association has managed to raise an impressive £2490.
The successful event, which was held in Ivegill Village Hall last weekend, saw guests dancing to live ceilidh band ‘Thrice Brewed’ as well as bidding in a charity auction with covetable prizes including the chance to name an Eddie Stobart Truck, an AP McCoy racing whip and home-delivered Beech House Holidays Simple Suppers.
Anna Aston, owner of Beech House Holidays, who organised the event, said: “We are over the moon that it was such a great night and most importantly, that we raised such a brilliant amount. It was fantastic to see the families from RDA enjoying the music and dancing and a beer together.
“Everyone has been incredibly generous and we are very thankful for their help in supporting Carlisle RDA, which is a truly amazing organization”
Anna and her family have personally experienced the value of Carlisle RDA’s work, as her son Archie rides with them regularly.
Carlisle RDA is dedicated to improving the lives of people with disabilities through learning to ride and aims to help people see that it’s what they CAN do that really counts. The funds raised will help Carlisle RDA to continue this crucial work.
