Ride Out UK Month
Ride Out UK Month is taking place over the whole of May. Please do encourage your committees, BRC’s, approved centres and Affiliated access groups to get involved in any way. To incentivise them we’re offering 10 BHS branded hi-viz tabards* worth £150 for each organised event and rosettes to hand out to people taking part.
We’re also holding a competition for:
- Most amount of money raised by a group
- Most amount of money raised by an approved centre
- Most amount of money raised by an individual
- Best photo on social media #howwasyourride
Bridleway Equestrian is sponsoring us again and to raise more money and get more of a national feel we’re in the process of organising rides on National Trust properties in each country. Killerton Estate in Devon has been confirmed (final checks depending) for 14 May, and we’re making progress with rides in Scotland and Ireland. I’m waiting to hear back from my National Trust contact for Wales but am confident this will go ahead. I’ve also thought of an idea for a clearing project – getting the BHS teamed up with the local council and Ramblers to clear bridleways in their area. I’m hoping this will bump up the campaign and give some great press coverage on collaborating with other organisations. I’ll shortly be sending an email round advising of the clearance idea and if anyone would like to get involved.
Anyway – please do advertise the event! Once something has been organised they need to let BHS know so it can be advertised online! Email the details to firstname.lastname@example.org with event details.
