In an email from Kay Allen OBE on behalf of ARC Ride, that raised £4000 for good causes, she has thanked those that have sponsored and donated gifts for the raffle. As the Golden Paste Company, we were honoured to sponsor the ride.
On April 29th, 187 riders set off (along with 5 Donkeys) to ride our 3 routes across Ashcombe, Rushmore and Chettle.
The event cost £1400 to put on with the hire of loos, countless yellow arrows! Hi Viz Jackets, maps, map bags and of course rosettes, all our cost were raised from brilliant sponsors.
Our Raffle was also a great success raising over £700
In total we made £3200 from our entries and the photos are now selling at £2 each
You can check out the action on our website www.arcride.co.uk

£1000 Dorset Air Ambulance
£1000 St Peters Church Tollard Royal
£1000 to Chettle Church
£500 to Dorset Search and Rescue
