John's amazing efforts

January 9, 2019

Well, a huge CONGRATULATIONS to you all; the total amount raised for John Thorpe's sponsored bike ride from Manchester to Blackpool was a magnificent £1156.78, so a massive Thank You on behalf of all the residents of Three Owls. With the colder months of the winter now upon us, this will be marvellous in helping keep our donated supplies topped up to ensure the varied Reserve Feeding Stations have a constant supply for all who visit.


We kept the fund open to the end of the year, as those sending funds from abroad had wanted to include it with their Christmas donations.


As ever, a HUGE Thank You and Well Done to John himself, for undertaking the gruelling ride each year; 2019 will be his 30th consecutive ride .... I wouldn't be surprised to find it's a record in itself!
