Ruby’s Ride for Charity
Ruby McNamara has raised an impressive £1053.00 for the British heart foundation as part of her Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
For her volunteering activity Ruby chose to raise money for a charity, she did this by setting herself the challenge of riding her Dartmoor pony the equivalent distance to the circumference of Dartmoor (100miles) over the 12 week period.
She set off with such determination that she completed the 100miles in just six weeks, an incredible achievement in itself, and while she’d well exceeded the 12 hours set out by the D of E Award, she’d not done the 12 weeks, so she decided to do the obvious thing and double the challenge and off she set for another 100miles!
She completed the 200miles on August 27th, greeted by family and friends at Fingle Bridge.
