Events and Fundraising

As you can appreciate, the regular costs of the upkeep of our ponies, our premises, and our facilities are significant.

We receive no funding from National RDA or elsewhere, so it is down to us to fundraise on a continual basis. 

Our RDA group  organises many fun and varied fundraising activities and projects throughout the year, and would so appreciate it if you could  support our efforts by taking part, helping with, or sponsoring any of these.

Thank You!

Cirencester Street Collection

We are taking Ben, our ever popular little RDA pony, with us to the annual Cirencester Christmas street collection this year. It will be held on 

Saturday 18th December 2021

This will not only be a good chance to raise some much needed funds for Watershed RDA, but also to promote and explain what we do, and to chat with members of the public. 

We are very grateful to Kate Beim for continuing to loan him to us. Everyone is  always delighted to meet and stroke him, and he seems to love it too!

Christmas Lunch  2021


Unfortunately we have had to make the difficult, and disappointing decision to cancel our Christmas lunch which was to be held on Friday 17th December.


The safety and protection  of our riders and their associates, our volunteers and supporters  must always be  paramount and we feel that in the light of the increasing risk of transmission of the Covid virus, it would be unwise to go ahead with this group gathering.


Pot of Gold

These Pots of Gold are a very popular and productive way of raising much needed funds for Watershed RDA.

The idea is to save all your copper coloured loose change (ie 2p's and 1p's ) into an old yoghurt pot.. and when it is full, you can hand this treasure in to us in the Mess room. We will then count it and put in in our bank to boost our coffers.

It's amazing how much it adds up to!

We can supply you with a pot ready to start saving..or you can make your own. 

Thank you SO much in advance!
