Thank you to our fundraisers.

Thank you fundraisers -from Ups and Downs Southwest


A massive thank you to everyone that has given their time and support to raise much-needed funds for us. Without this support, we would be unable to continue with our very important work.

Back in June, 5 amazing women cycled from Chalke Valley to Paris in aid of our charity.

They raised over £5,000!! An astonishing amount and we are truly grateful for the support that you have given us. Thank you.
