He Did It!

On Saturday 25th June Dick Venables crossed the ‘Finish line’ in the center of St Davids following a whopping 216 mile cycle ride from Stafford.

He was joined for the last leg of his journey by his family including Sons Paul and Chuck - Venables Brothers Ltd Directors. 

They were welcomed into St Davids by the mayor, the dean, more family and friends and representatives from the Dalit Freedom Network – The Charity that will be benefitting from all of the generous donations.

     

 

Thank you to everyone that supported and sponsored him, the response was overwhelming and his total at the moment stands at over £11,000.00!! Well over the £5000.00 anticipated.

He’s now enjoying a well earned rest and who blames him?!

 

Thanks for reading!

Office News....Grandads Tour De Wales

If you follow our Social Media pages (and why wouldn’t you?!) you’ll know that Dick Venables, Dad of our directors Paul and Chuck, is embarking on a 200 mile Charity Bike Ride.

This is a huge feat for anyone, let alone being 84 years old!

He is being accompanied by his Nephew Marcus on the route, taking him from Stafford to St Davids in Wales. He chose this route in honour of 60 years of family holidays in St Davids with his Late Wife Caty.

He is raising money for the Dalit Freedom Network, a charity helping to prevent the trafficking and modern slavery of marginalised communities in India.

His goal is to raise £10,000 to help fund a Shelter for vulnerable Children over there. 

He would be very grateful for any donations, big or small. Please follow the link below to his Virgin Money Giving Page.

Summer is on the way….

It’s true, summer is on the way and although I can’t promise a month long heat wave I can promise light nights.

 

This is the perfect time to start to plan your next Garden project.

 

A simple raised Sleeper boarder can add character to any garden space, a decking area for alfresco dining, or for those enviable people with oodles of space how about an impressive pergola?
