Sheriffs of the City to Tour the City on horseback


Dear Fellow Liverymen

The two Sheriffs of the City, Alderman Charles Bowman and myself will be touring the City on horseback on 27th July, and raising funds for the Sheriffs’ & Recorder’s Fund in the process.  This very worthwhile cause provides small grants to London ex-offenders, helping them into work and changing their lives.

Wearing out full Shrieval kit, complete with swords, we will have a mounted escort of officers of the HAC Light Cavalry, and City of London Police.  It should be quite a sight and, as a complete novice on horseback, I am learning to ride for the occasion – I need all the support I can get!

Charles and me would be really grateful if you would sponsor us – we suggest a donation of just £10.

This can be done via our Just Giving page– http://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/sheriffs, or by texting to CBCR66 £10 to 70070

Very many thanks indeed for your support.

With all best wishes,


Dr CH Rigden
Sheriff of the City of London
