Chris and Dash Sports Driving Unlimited help support our disabled charity by recycling your ink cartridges and mobiles

We have signed up with Vodaphone’s JustTextGiving service.  On your mobile phone you can text our unique code: LOGG11 and the amount preceded by the £ sign to 70070.  We are currently completely out of funds to support lessons so please donate - small amounts add up and make a big difference!

email Rosemary for recycling envelopes

We can now supply recycling envelopes for ink cartridges etc through Recycle 4 Charity. Contact Rosemary for envelopes.  We get £1 per cartridge - that soon adds up!

Dartmoor Hill Pony Association

Many of the ponies that we use for all our disabled driving (and riding) activities are from the Dartmoor Hill breed. These are the most fantastic ponies with wonderful natures. Gentle, strong, gutsy, beautiful paces - there’s nothing in the smaller pony world to beat them.  They really need support though - they are vital for maintaining Dartmoor’s landscape and provide pleasure for visitors. But there is little general market for them and with indiscriminate breeding, too many foals are born.  

To save them from suffering, many are simply shot each autumn, which is a tragedy.  The solution is simple: contraceptives for the mares, Ponies on the Pill, but the Association urgently needs land to achieve this. Please take a look at their website and log on to sign the petition to allow a group of them to graze a piece of land where the results of the treatment can be properly assessed.

Can you help?  Could you organise an event to raise funds?  Do you know anyone who might like to donate? Do you have any different ideas that we might not have thought of?  Do you know any charitable trusts that we might not have discovered yet. If you think you can help in any way at all please contact us. Phone Rosemary on 01576 610544 or email us. Please!
