The reason for the Raffle…

As well as struggling to survive a pandemic resulting in reduced income streams the charity wants provide some basics, specifically to install hot water for their volunteers, riders and staff in the brew room and toilets.

This involves an expensive electrical upgrade and plumbing. We have people kindly donating their skills but still need to buy materials.
