Organ donation is incredibly important - this young guy is inspirational and a fabulous ambassador for The CF Trust x ... See MoreSee Less
I’m sat in the warm Portuguese sunshine with my mind wandering to all the events we’ve organised for Cystic Fibrosis and importantly all the people who have helped and supported us out of pure kindness and genorisity ...
Some people who I didn’t yet publicly thank for Rams Ramble are Paul and Jean Rigby who own the field we used - none of it would have happened without their kindness (and trust!) ...Henry Backhouse who brought bales of straw which were a huge help and local farmer John Hartley - who came to see what we were doing and then decided to bring his cherry picker (or similar) machine to give people a ride in for a donation, other local farmers kindly helped and gave their time, preparing the field and the route....so many friends and members of the R4CF community who also volunteered their time ....we only raise the money because people are willing to help - and do it selflessly.
Stephen Taylor and I have our own reasons for wanting to fight this cruel illness - but Garry Wilkinson does it just because he’s a top bloke! ...we’d struggle without him - he never stops coming up with ways to help increase the total raised and works tirelessly....
Jonathan and Fran from The Red Pump Inn worked so hard, gave us a fantastic donation and also sponsored the children’s activities.
Joanna Horrocks-Potts and Clare Wilkin who gave so much time organising the children’s games and sourcing prizes ... thank you.
Our musicians Solid Rock, Ciaran Wynne from Ireland, Sam Cudworth of local band Milky Bobbins, Joel Taylor and Indigo Rose ....all performed brilliantly and for nothing - just to support CF....and of course The Morris Dancers!
Thanks everyone for everything - it’s making a difference ...and we will keep fighting CF until we beat it! Gx ... See MoreSee Less
Just had another kind donation posted through my door - £30 towards our Rams Ramble for Cystic Fibrosis ....£13,860.60... thank you so much - it means so much x ... See MoreSee Less
The total raised for Rams Ramble now stands at £13,830.60 - amazing! Supporting the incredible work The Cystic Fibrosis Trust do is important to us but we couldn't do it without the backing, enthusiasm and generosity we get from so many others - companies, individuals and other charities.....to that end we have quite a few thank you's to do!
