Round up – May

This is it… just 41 days to go!

We are in the home straight now, just over a month until Launch in Brussels and our TODO list seems to be growing rather than shrinking!

However, we can say that everything is under control. Just need a few more visas to go, get the ambulance ready, finalise the details of the route and finally, packing up the whole house!

Our fundraising is going amazingly well, we are only £900 away from our target. Thank you so much to everyone that has helped us so far, you are wonderful!

We have our charity raffle coming up in a couple of weeks, you can’t miss it! There are amazing prizes worth more than £800.
