We’re pleased as punch to inform you all that Grant’s fundraising efforts have exceeded their target for the Bethan Roper Trust for Refugees – Grant has so far raised a whopping £1,142 of his £980 target. Keep the donations flowing…


Grant’s arrived in Scotland – braving the traditional Scottish weather in support of BRT and Maggies in Swansea we’re quoting here:

“I’m singing Love Me Tender to my arse…”

We all appreciate the effort Grant!


Scotland looking foreboding here! Rather you than us Grant – from our nice warm houses in South Wales – we’re very appreciative of your hard graft!

MESSAGE FROM GRANT


I made it!  £3700+ raised, 980 miles in 9 days of cycling.  I’ll keep this brief so you can chose what to do, including deleting at this point!

  1. Here’s some photos to prove I was there and to show off some great landscapes :     https://gld.smugmug.com/Events/RAB2019
  2. If you are interested in some rambling reflections, you can read them here:   https://gldbt.blog/rab-2019-fundraising
  3. Finally, many many thanks to everyone who has supported in whatever way – either by comment and/or funds, even humorous abuse. And to Barbara who supported me through the training, encouragement, planning skills and who came up to fetch me.  It kept all me going when the going got tough. Trite and true.

Over and out on this! Grant
