Well done to all getting up at 7.30am to clean up and get rid of the hangover with a Bloody Mary and Bacon Sarnie (Olwyn made a special trip from Brides Les Bains just to clean, that’s dedication!).
If I have missed anyone I am really sorry but your contribution was very much appreciated. You have all been an inspiration and should be proud of what you have achieved. Next years Charity Day could see some exciting changes making it a better day and safer environment for all and their families.
So watch this space... Positive Altitude !
