John's put the pedal to the metal!

July 8, 2018

Well, once again John has completed his sponsored Bike Ride from Manchester to Blackpool in aid of Three Owls. I won't take the wind out of his sails by going into great description now, as he'll be busy writing-up his Bike Ride Report this week, and then we can post it up on here.


Monies received so far in supporting his efforts have just topped the £200 mark; so we are already a fifth of the way to that magic £1000 marker.

Many thanks to you all for your continued support.
