Volunteering & Fundraising
All our members are encouraged to take part in the volunteering and fundraising opportunities within the club. Past volunteering opportunities range from RDA work to local animal sanctuaries. We also fundraise for RDA and other charities, by organising bake sales and sponsored events such as the Colour Run. In 2017/18 the club produced its first charity naked calendar, which even made it into Horse & Hound! We also held our first Family & Friends Polo match in 2019/20, which raised over £1000 for the Odd Balls charity.

Millhouse Animal Sanctuary
Over the past year, some of our SUEC members regularly visited Millhouse Animal Sanctuary to walk the ponies and dogs. It was a very fun and we raised donated some money to them!
During lockdown, SUEC also teamed up with the Pet Society to organise a Virtual Pet Show, which fundraised over £700 for Millhouse Animal Sanctuary!
Smile at Lightwood
We have had an amazing year raising money for the therapy ponies at Smile at Lightwood so that they can get out and about more - visiting care homes and hospices. They have become regular visitors to the Sheffield University concourse and they are such a great stress reliever for the students!
