10k Sponsored Log Run
Enormous thanks to all the guys who run the 10k with the Pink Log - remarkable effort since some of you had such bad hangovers! Thank you Ben in organising such a great fund raising event and for all your continued support. I can see that the log run could become a yearly event over different terrain and courses! So watch this space for news of the Pink Log!
If you wish to sponsor the boys please visit: www.justgiving.com/Ben-Richards52. Any donations greatly received.
We are pleased to announce that the walk did take place on the Saturday 30th June, a week later than planned due to the awful weather. The day of the walk was not much better.
Karl Hartey said "The morning started mild enough - but near the summit the clouds drew in and the heavens opened with gusts of winds up to 35-60 mph. It was hard going!"
We would like to thank all those who managed the day and in particular young Raffy Jermy aged 10 for completing the walk.
The Magical Charity Ball 2012
Our aim was to raise a significant amount of money for the foundation and we did just that. We'd like to thank everyone for their donations - the total funds raised on the evening was £1925. The highlight of the evenings entertainment was Laura London - a fantastic Magic act to take your breath away, followed by music from Bad Hair Day - to dance the night away until the early hours
