OUR PLEDGE


100% of the donations we receive will assist The Ride of Respect to provide items for ex-service personnel that cannot be provided by other Charities together with offering funding for professional help for those who are seeking emotional assistance (PTSD etc) together with any other help that is required as all needs differ We are not supporting any individual Military Charities as we are finding people that do not meet other Military Charities criteria and this is where the Ride of Respect can help.

The RoR team are delighted to announce that our chosen charity for

 this years Ride of Respect 46 Miles is Veterans in Action

http://www.veteransinaction.org.uk/about/history/


I am the Founder and Chief Operations Officer for Veterans In Action (Veterans In Action - VIA). I fully understand that most of you will not have heard of VIA and that is in the main down to myself. I started VIA 8 years ago just after H4H started up so with their rise it was hard to get publicity so in the end I stopped trying. I just got on with doing what we were doing which was helping those who suffered from PTSD or who had found it hard to adjust to civvie street. I took a different approach and that was the non-therapy approach and instead we used the outdoors, challenging events and expeditions to help raise veterans confidence, self-esteem and self-belief. In the last 5 years VIA have walked a distance of 12,600 miles across Britain with over 500 veterans suffering from PTSD and from our centre in Hampshire we have helped over 1000 veterans by either getting them involved on the expedition, on the projects we run or by sending them in the direction for the best help for their individual needs.  Please visit our site for more information and to contact us.

VARIOUS CAUSES / CHARITIES THE RIDE OF RESPECT HAS BEEN ABLE TO HELP

 DUE TO THE BIKERS GENEROSITY



19th November 2015, Spitfire Cafe, Biggin Hill


The cheque for £1,000 was presented by representatives of the Ride of Respect to the Armed Forces Bikers Charity from monies raised at the Ring of Red 2015 M25 Remembrance Day Ride. 


No doubt the money will go to helping more of our UK Armed forces and families.



Also on the 19th November at the Spitfire Cafe another cheque for £1,00 was donated to UK Homes for Heroes who help ex-service personnel finding homes, helping them get their lives back together and giving them hope for a better future.   Definitely more of the monies raise from the Ring of Red M25 2015 Remembrance Ride going to a very good cause. 

On the 9th December representatives from the Ride of Respect visited the Hounds for Heroes charity and saw for themselves what the charity is all about.


After a talk on the history of the charity, they were treated to a display of what the assistance dogs can do and how they can help an injured or disabled person from our UK Armed Forces or our Civilian Emergency Services.


The Ride of Respect handed over a cheque for £1,000 raised from this years Ring of Red M25 mass ride on Remembrance Sunday 9th November 2015.


No doubt this money will be put to good use.

UK Homes4Heroes sent their thanks to you all.
This donation was from the merchandise money we all raise from the RoR rides.


January 2016 -  Received from Phill Damant the Chairman (Trustee) of the Armed Forces Bikers

I would like to personally thank you and the rest of the RoR team, on behalf of the Trustees and Members of the AFB, for considering our Charity as a recipient of funds. Your donation of £395 was perfectly timed, as around the time that it hit the bank I was assisting a homeless veteran into his own home. From your own work you will know how hard it is to generate funds, this donation made a real difference. I hope that we can continue to work together to continue our mutual good works. Thank you. Phill


Today VIA went to deliver 4 bikes with equipment to Simon Weston House which is a house for veterans run by Care after Combat in Southampton. The bikes have been donated by the bikers from the Official Ride of Respect who have chosen VIA as the charity they will be supporting this year. The bikes were handed over to VIA last week by Ride of Respect organiser Julia Stevenson and VIA and and Care after Combat would like to thank all the bikers from Ride of Respect and the fantastic team who make it happen every year. Also a huge thanks to Halfords in Dartford for their support in donating equipment and being so helpful. These bikes have now given these veterans freedom to get around.

Another good deed done by the Ride of Respect :)

Today Julia recieved a call from Sally who ownes the Spitfire Cafe at Biggin Hill Kent ,who informed her 
that a  Battle of Britain veteran Pilot, DFC who is 94yrs old had his mobility scooter stolen a few months ago and
 bought a second hand one which has gone wrong and cannot be fixed. Sally asked if the ROR could get a ride together and collect donations to help buy another scooter.    Well, she took it to the RoR Team to see how we could help  this hero and we're pleased to inform you all that a scooter has now been purchesed and on its way to this 
Lovely man.   It was purchase from a local company Charterwood Mobility, Maidstone in Kent who kindly
 gave us a £250 discount on it because of who it was for, so a big thank you to them for their kindness. 

All thanks to each and everyone of you who has bought merchandise.
Thankyou as together we can make a difference. 
Julia Stevenson & the Ride of Respect Team
