We’re proud to share the news that the team at Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil has raised £3342 for Ryedale Special Families in Malton who support the families of children and young people with disabilities and additional needs in Ryedale.

The money was raised from the proceeds of a Limited Edition Lemon, Garlic, Oregano and Thyme Oil and a 44-mile sponsored walk along the Wold Rangers Way. Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil also supported the charity with giveaways for its primary annual fundraiser, The Yorkshire Wolds Cycle Challenge and hosted families from the charity for a Farm Education Day.

Of the achievement, Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil’s Marketing Manager Jennie Palmer said: “We’re delighted to have raised so much for such a deserving cause and wish them well for their fundraising for a new building. It’s great to see that work has started on it.”

Ryedale Special Families began in the early 1990’s when a group of 20 families of disabled children started to meet in their own homes in order to share challenges and experiences, as well as offer mutual support to each other. It became a registered charity in 1997 and now provides support to 350 families throughout the Ryedale area.
