Hooray! Coast to coast ride managed!

Hooray! Coast to coast ride managed!


Wow – what an experience! Caroline and Siobhan completed their epic ride from the West coast in the Lake District, to the East coast in Tynemouth, to raise money to buy new IT resources for Stampers. I think we are nearly at  our £600 target…so if you would like to sponsor us, it is not too late, and if you have already, thank you SO MUCH – it helped keep us going, as well as being for a very good cause.

If you have something in mind as a challenge for yourself, why not do it to raise money for Stampers? It’s a fantastic sense of personal achievement. We are a very small charity, totally dependent on fundraising for all our resources. So all your fundraising efforts are invaluable and very much appreciated.

Stampers would like to say a massive thank you to Caroline, and her family for supporting her, for all her efforts in this fundraising effort. More soon on what the money has bought…

Here are some photos…
