THE RAYNER FOUNDATION
Unfortunately due to COVID restrictions, the 2021 Gala Dinner will not take place. Please donate so we can continue to help riders in 2022
Since 1994, our success in helping young riders has been made possible thanks to people just like you. With your generous contribution, no matter how great or small, we are able to truly make a difference.
Since March 2020 our ability to fund raise in our usual ways stopped. We had no choice but to postpone the 2020 Etape Du Dales. We did hold a virtual Dinner event in November 2020, and this again helped to raise much needed funds to enable the Foundation to continue and as a result applications for funding opened for the 2021 racing calendar
January 2021 -
Despite the COVID-19 travel restrictions across Europe and the UKs changed requirements following Brexit, we put in place support programmes for a total of 42 riders for 2021. There was a good mixture of new riders, supported for the first time, and those being supported for a second or third year as their careers progress.
August 2021 -
Restrictions lifted and the delayed 2020 Etape Du Dales took place
September 2021 - Gala Dinner decision -
We have taken the unenviable decision to postpone the Gala Dinner for 2021. Since it's inception we have attracted the best VIP guests and prizes the World Tour Teams have to offer, and we look forward to bringing you a 2022 event that will go down in the history books!!!!
Unfortunately, we cannot support riders without donations and we ask you to consider donating to the foundation now
Although not a commercial organisation, we welcome the support and assistance of partners to achieve our goals. If your organisation would like to support our ambitions please get in touch.
