58 walkers and 19 dogs enjoyed a fabulous walk in the sunshine for this year’s walk in memory of Rory. We are grateful to Will and Stuart at the White Lion for allowing us to use their garden for all the walkers to meet up in the morning – and enjoy bacon rolls cooked by JC. During the day walkers were given a constant drip feed of homemade cakes and biscuits, sloe gin and tea/coffee, in between pub stops and a heart, hot lunch at Home Farm. Thank you to Harry and Jane Parker for allowing us to use the barn, once again.
We were so pleased to have so many walkers – lots of people who really treat this as an essential fixture in their diary, plus some new faces too.
We raised £2,000, which takes the total to over £84,000.

We very much hope to see you at some point during the weekend.
On Wednesday, 14th December we were lucky enough to be trading at the Christmas Market to raise funds for Rory’s Memorial Fund for Wheels4Life.
It was the first day of good weather that week and we were able to set up in good time in the sunshine. Yes, it was cold, but a lovely fresh day.
Friends and family had been very busy baking and amazingly we raised over £1,000 selling cakes, tree decorations, sunflower seeds and mulling spices, including some generous donations.
On behalf of the family, a HUGE thank you to all the bakers and to all our customers. Also a thank you to Salisbury Christmas Market staff who were so kind and helpful during the day, as well as in the lead up to it.
We are hoping to get a chalet at the 2017 market – watch this space!
