Members had a very successful coffee afternoon at the Llangollen rally sat in the late September sunshine. Everyone gave very generously cakes and money and we raised £300 which is a fabulous result. Thankyou to you all. Janice Patterson 

The Indian Head donated by Barbara Matthews raised a total of £113 for Claire House, the hospice for terminally ill children. Sally and John sold £78 worth of raffle tickets at the Western Motorhome Show rally and the winner, like many of those who bought tickets,  did not want to take the head home. There were plenty there who had hoped to win it, so it was put up for auction.  Bidding started at £5 and the highest bid was from Ken Handley who bid £32, then generously made it up to £35 when he took collection. It was all very exciting and great fun. 

Hello everyone, well we did it !!! we battled through the quick sand and the channels of water up to the thighs we did 8.5 miles in 3.5 hrs cos the group was very big maybe 500 strong 200 from MND and then made up of other charities and some individual walkers for the hell of it. See some of our photos (below). We had the added bonus of good weather also,
I would like to thank everyone who donated to MND we raised an incredible £1131 so far cos the just giving page is still active.
Many thanks to all for taking the time to donate we can only say a big THANKS
