RMDS Charitable Donations
From the very beginning, RMDS has made it a priority to give back to the local community
From the very beginning of the society, RMDS has worked to support the local community. During one year in the First World War, the society raised a sum of £91-15s-1d which, in today's terms is the equivalent to £26,000.
Since 2002, RMDS has donated in excess of £190,000 to local charities and good causes. RMDS is also the principal donor for Ringwood Arts Centre, having committed over £100,000 to the project.
RMDS is a Gold Sponsor of Ringwood Carnival and was awarded joint third place in the procession of the 2016 Carnival with their float promoting Ringwood Arts Centre.
