John Thorpe's Sponsored Bike Ride Grand Total

February 27, 2021

Well, what a fantastic response from you all; an amazing £1,066 in total was raised in donations to Three Owls in support of John's solo bike ride last July. All had seemed lost at one point when the Ride was cancelled due to the Pandemic, but one not to be beaten was our John who made the ride solo (and even took in a few extra miles). Thanks must also go to Les Horton and Jon Chaston for bringing him back again!

I kept the fund running into the New Year, as lots of people asked for their New Year donations to count towards his total, and wow what a superb amount this has grown to be.

Thank you again for your wonderful support, and a HUGE thank you to John too for his wonderful efforts in the saddle - we will make sure that every penny raised goes on to support the wild birds in our care now and in the future.
