Brough Rough ‘N’ 2017 – Charity/Memorial Trial

Another successful Brough Trial- To raise money for Bluebell Wood and remember a good friend Andy Atkinson.

First of all we must say a huge thank you to Jonny & Laura Carr, as without them this amazing trial wouldn’t happen.

We are still waiting for the final total that we have raised for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, but we know we have raised a fantastic amount of around £2000 due to your generosity. Thank you so much to everyone who donated, entered, bought food, raffle tickets, and donated prizes.
