Team Members' Bike-a-Thon - 3rd-7th July

Our Team Members also wanted to join in with the fundraising activities and chose to do a sponsored cycle ride.  They took it in turns to cycle on a static exercise bike outside our tea room with the aim of completing a total of at least 30 miles each day, they smashed this and completed 176 miles over the week. They raised a total of £357 which will be split between Oak Tree Farm and Our Space Adventure Playground in Newcastle.  Thank you to everyone who supported us and sponsored our Team Members.
