Woodside Farm Stables RDA receives £19,000
from the John F. Mortimer Fund

This fund is administered by the Nottinghamshire Community Foundation for the Provincial Grand Masonic Lodge of Nottinghamshire. Selected charities are invited to submit a funding bid and follow a process of interviews and presentations.

The Provincial Grand Master has the final decision on which two of those charities are to receive an award from the John F. Mortimer Fund. We are delighted to report that Woodside has been successful in securing a grant of £19,000 towards core costs to be used over the next 3 years starting in April,2012.

The cheque was presented during a ceremony at the Masonic Hall in Nottingham on 19th November.

A HUGE THANK YOU to Winifred Pritchett and Sue Taylor for their hard work in successfully securing this grant.

This does not mean we can take a rest from fundraising, because we will still need to raise at least £4,000 each year from riding donations and other funding initiatives, but the money is a massive boost towards our future, at least until 2015.

Thank you to everyone for their support and commitment to date – keep up the good work.
