Funding Ryedale Special Families funds the services we provide through a mixture of contracted work, grants from organisations like BBC Children in Need and many other smaller grant giving trusts.
We organise a number of fundraising events each year, including a series of tribute band concerts at the Milton Rooms in Malton.
Our annual Yorkshire Wolds Cycle Challenge is now approaching its 10th year and this year attracted 255 cyclists, raising almost £39,000! For details of this year's event please click here
Any ideas for future events are always extremely welcome!
Organise your own fundraising event - we receive support from individuals and groups in many ways ranging from simple coffee mornings to Christmas concerts!
