Great Success for the Thames Bridges Trek!
26 September 2017
Back in March we told you about the Thames Bridges Trek
, a 25km slog over 16 bridges that was undertaken by our branch secretary Lesley Belton, her husband Andy, and Dan Merton along with over 3,000 other people.
We're pleased to report that Lesley and Andy managed to raise an incredible £652.59 of their £500 sponsorship target! Dan, meanwhile, raised £636.50, and as he reached his target of £500 his generous employer matched it, giving him a total of £1,136.50! This, combined with an additional £102.75 from Gift Aid as well as the proceeds from our Pawsome Afternoon Tea
and Andy's cake sale means the dynamic trio raised a whopping £1,995.84
in total for the branch, an absolutely fantastic figure well worth all their hard work.
True gluttons for punishment, Lesley and Andy have already signed up for next year's Thames Bridges Trek, which is set to take place on Saturday the 8th of September 2018.
A huge thank you to everyone who supported our Thames Bridges Trek!
