Thank you once again to the lovely villagers of Preston, nr. Hitchin and hosts of ‘The Red Lion’, Ray and Jo Lambe for a wonderful day on 26 June 2011. We had all the ingredients to enjoy a wonderful day in the sun: tombola, the Gift Tree, bouncing castle, a village treasure hunt, all day BBQ and Paella, cake and sweet stall, live music, and of course… Elvis!

As well as Ray and Jo and all the lovely customers, thank you so much to Tracy and Gary, Julie and John and all the dedicated team of helpers who were there all day long. Thank you also to the children of the Preston village school who had a non-uniform day on the day before our Fun Day and each paid £1 for the privilege. they presented Ray and Jo with £100 which was raised from that to go towards our event.

The day raised a whopping €3,992!

Not bad for a day’s work! (Jo, Tracy & Co, we know there was a lot more than one day’s work in it!)

We are already looking forward to next year – in the mean time, this group are also coming over to Ireland in September to cycle from Galway to Dublin to raise even more funds!
