Ruth and Stephen with Lynne and another great supporter Fiona at the bag packing in December
After their son, Paul, died nearly 7 years ago, his parents Ruth and Stephen, (and his sister and brother-in-law) have been superb fundraisers for us – honouring Paul at the same time. I knew Paul a wee bit and am certain that he would be astounded and proud of all they have achieved. We have had many cyclists taking part in cycling challenges in Paul’s name – our team is called Pedal 4 Paul. Several cyclists have become regulars for us. I have been part of it all by always being at the finish line or at the mid-way point with sandwiches and refreshments.
In addition to all that, Ruth and Stephen have organised an annual bag packing day at Marks and Spencer food hall raising over £1000 each time and on one memorable occasion over £1800!
Both of these lovely people have promoted our charity over the years and it is with much pride that I asked them to become Ambassadors for us. After all, they have been that just not had the title.
It was lovely how honoured they both felt about being asked but honestly they have been quite remarkable supporters.
A very warm welcome to them both.
