Bob can be sponsored via his fundraising page on BT Donate as follows: mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/roberthowells1. Do please go to the page and sponsor Bob.

Sussex Wanderers’ Donation

February 4, 2019 at 4:15 pm

The kind motor enthusiasts from the Sussex Wanderers MG Car Club have been raising money for us again! Their meetings during 2018 raised a fantastic £1,000 for us, which was handed over on January 29th.

Two members braved the elements in their beautiful cars, making a perfect photo opportunity, with our star pony Liquorice getting in on the action too.

David and Ursula Griffiths organise this donation every year, and we are very grateful to them and their fellow members.
