Which two charities shall we support next? Nominations now open.

30 June 2023

Since we opened the Club in 2017, we are thrilled to have raised over £35,000 for local charities, thanks to the wonderful support of our members and staff. 

Every summer we ask members to choose two charities, which we then support over the following 12 months through a series of events held at the Club. Examples include our coffee mornings, Spinathon and Summer Ball. 

This past year we have been supporting the Sue Ryder Hospice in Moggerhanger and the Elisabeth Curtis Riding Centre for the Disabled and we will shortly be announcing the totals raised for them – it’s been another brilliant year of fundraising.

As it’s nearly July it’s now time to ask: who you would like the Club to support for 2023-2024?

We have two criteria for nominations. They must be either:

  • A local (to Bedfordshire) charity


  • A charity involved in sport or fitness

We are also looking to support charities that we haven’t supported before. So far, we have supported Autism Bedfordshire, The Kings Arm’s Project, Bedford Open Door, Bedford Hospital Charity & Friends, Bedfordshire Sands, CHUMS, the Tibbs Dementia Foundation & The MS Therapy Centre and most recently the Sue Ryder Hospice in Moggerhanger and the Elisabeth Curtis Riding Centre for the Disabled in Bromham.

Nominations are now open and should be sent to [email protected] by midnight on the 11th July.  All adult members can nominate up to two local charities.

After the closing date for nominations, a list will be circulated of all the nominations that meet the above criteria and members will be asked to vote for their top two. The two with the most votes will be selected as our charities for the year. Charities only need one vote to make the shortlist.

Shortlist for 2023-2024 can now be found here and voting closes at midnight on the 7th August.

Any questions, please do let us know via [email protected].
