Every penny raised, by various means, including raffles, dances, quizzes, auctions of promises, BBQs, music festivals, collection boxes and the 100 Club, goes towards providing a free week-long camping holiday for 16 to 18 children between the ages of 11 and 16. Since 1970, the riding camp has been an annual event where holiday children can experience real camping away from family and professional carers, and, along with dedicated teams of volunteer helpers, spend a week, at the end of July/early August, under canvas in Wiltshire.
