Ride Round England
Latest news on William Reddaway’s fundraising adventure
William Reddaway, former Head of Lifelong Learning at Farncombe Estate, has embarked on an exciting new venture since his retirement in 2011.
William is aiming to raise £250,000 for two charities which support families and young people. He will ride to the Four Corners of England, visiting 30 cathedrals on the way, a distance of around 2,500 miles.
The ride – on William’s horse “Strider” – will start from Farncombe Estate in Spring 2013 and take six months. Training is well underway and we will keep you updated as William sets out on his ride.
William will visit the “Four Corners” of England: Bowness-on-Solway (north west); Berwick-upon-Tweed (north east); North Foreland (south east) and Land’s End (south west.) He is raising funds for the Family Holiday Association and Wormwood Scrubs Pony Centre – Riding for the Disabled.
Family Holiday Association
The only national charity in the UK which specialises in providing holidays to disadvantaged families. William has supported the FHA since his daughter’s school were fundraising for them in 1994. For more information, go to www.fhaonline.org.uk
