We are always grateful for any support.

Although we are affiliated to Riding for the Disabled Association (our ‘Trade Association’) we are a financially independent company providing therapy for disabled children. In order to meet our costs, we rely entirely on the generous donations that are made to Newbury RDA and through fundraising events run by our volunteers and other kind people.

Newbury Riding for the Disabled is a registered “good cause” with West Berkshire Lottery. Click here to buy tickets.

West Berkshire Lottery is an exciting weekly lottery that raises money for good causes in West Berkshire. All good causes supported by the lottery will benefit West Berkshire and its residents.

  • Lottery Tickets cost £1 per week – 50p of each ticket goes to the chosen cause; 10p to a community fund which will enable one-off grants to be made to the lottery causes in addition to their direct fundraising and will be awarded by an independent panel on behalf of West Berkshire Council.
  • Each ticket has a 1 in 50 chance to win a prize each week, with a top prize of £25,000!
  • That’s a better chance of winning than the National Lottery or the Health Lottery!

Each ticket consists of 6 numbers between 0 and 9. A draw will take place every Saturday night when a 6-digit winning combination will be picked. Prizes will be given to players with tickets that match the first or last 2-6 numbers from the winning combination. Match all 6 and you win the JACKPOT!

Amazon Smile – an easy way to support us is to use Amazon Smile and chose Newbury RDA to benefit from anything you buy.

Other opportunities are being considered. If you have a suggestion or would like to contribute in any way, please contact us.

As always, many thanks go to all of our volunteers and supporters, without whom we would be unable to operate; to all those who ran fundraising events, especially those who run our highly successful Autumn Gift Fair, and to Merial Animal Heath who provide annual vaccinations for RDA ponies countrywide.
