Community

Our help to the local community includes water stations at both the Helmsley and Kirkbymoorside 10k running races. We also help Ryedale Special Familes by marshalling a horse event on the moors at Bransdale.

Comments from Ride Yorkshire
'Thank you very much indeed for the marshalling, gate-opening and refreshments that you and your team provided for our funride last Saturday. I don't need to tell you that this kind of help is absolutely invaluable for these events - people appreciate it enormously. 
We had 38 riders in the end which is fewer than last year but a reasonable number nevertheless, and they enjoyed it all very much. Here are some comments: 

Just wanted to thank you and the Rotarians for a fantastic day. 

Looking forward to your next pleasure ride. 

Thanks for a gorgeous ride yesterday and a lovely meal at the end, all very well organised.

Thank you, for the lovely ride, and tasty lunch!

Thank you really enjoyed and the eats were fab too.

Brilliant day thank you.

There were even more from riders at the time - they really loved it. 
Thanks to all this and to sponsorship of the rosettes by McClarrons (insurance) of Malton, we are able to send a cheque for £580 to Ryedale Special Families, which I'm sure they will be pleased with. The event also raised a further £340 for Ride Yorkshire's own funds, which we will put to good use for our work with disadvantaged children and adults in Hull and York. 
I do hope we'll be invited back next year and that, if so, we can ask the Rotarians for your help again!
 
With best wishes,
