The Rutland Walking and Cycling Festival is back for 2017 following huge success over the last eight years. The festival is a fun packed celebration of Rutland and its glorious countryside and will host led walks and bike rides to suit all ages and abilities, perfect for a family day out. The residents of Rutland are encouraged to join the many visiting walkers and cyclists who travel from far and wide.
I have now turned the corner and am now in the home straight in terms of fund raising – I’ve raised £8000 of my target of £8644 – (£8644 representing £1 for every orphan who is registered with the Mango Tree Orphan Support Programme).
I would like to thank the very kind supporters of my ride in the village who took an interest in the ride, and helped me towards that target. I am especially grateful to Steve Marson who gave me so much technical support and advice before I set off!
The Mango Tree has been blessed by a film director who is a keen supporter and who went out to Kenya to visit the work of the charity and made a film for us.
