There are lots of ways you can support Ridley - by spreading the word about the College to your friends, by raising money through organising or participating in sponsored activities, or even when shopping at Amazon.
A home event is a gathering in a supporter's home, designed to spread information about the College and raise its wider profile. It is a relatively intimate, sociable event, usually with around 15-20 guests. The event itself can come in a variety of forms, from a coffee morning before church, a brief gathering after work, or a cheese and wine evening at the weekend.
In recent years, supporters have: run the Cambridge half marathon, walked the Camino to Santiago de Compostela, and asked their family and friends to give donations to Ridley to celebrate a wedding anniversary instead of making personal gifts. It's easy to set up an online sponsorship page through JustGiving. Your friends and family can give using their credit or debit cards, and the money is transferred directly to us. Gift Aid is also collected automatically. Your friends can also now sponsor you using their mobile phone. When you set up your JustGiving page, you will receive a text code that you can give to your friends. Click the button below and follow the steps to create your page.
If you buy from Amazon through our website link, Ridley will receive a percentage of your purchase. The percentage increases as more people us the link. It even works with third party sellers on Amazon. The scheme currently brings in around £70-£100 a month to support Ridley's work. To participate in the scheme. Click on 'Support Ridley through Amazon', add the Amazon webpage to your favourites, and use the link every time you go to the Amazon site:
