Fundraise or make a personal donation:

If you would prefer to make a personal donation instead of fundraising you can add this to your registration fee when you sign up.

If you choose to fundraise, we would love our riders to try and raise £100. This could pay for an hours care for a child like Isabella, giving her mum the chance to go out and meet friends so she can feel less isolated. 

Remember: Your entry fee covers the cost of organising the event but it's your donation or the money you raise that will make a difference to Julia’s House.
