Excellent news! Today I got an email from Debbie Chadbon, confirming that yesterday Debbie and her husband Paul had successfully completed their planned bike ride.
Read about the publicity she had in advance here: https://friendsofpakati.com/2021/05/14/donations-thank-yous-and-an-update-on-our-progress/
The ride was in aid of Friends of Pakati, as Debbie is, like the author, a former teacher at Pakati Secondary school back in the early 1990’s.
So far, we have recieved donations totalling £275.00, bringing our balance up to over £1200, so THANK YOU DEBBIE, PAUL & ALL WHO DONATED 👏👏👏
The pair had planned a 50 mile/80 km route out of Bristol (where they live) and back again.
Here is the email I had today:
Debbie sets off from home…
…soon she was looking across the Severn Valley towards Wales.
There is a lot of farmland in the area.
Taking a breather…
…just outside the grounds of Thornbury Castle.
Debbie’s last stop was at Warmley Station, a former railway station on the old Bristol – Bath line. Now it is a cycle path.
Finally she made it home for a cup of tea👍
Great to see Debbie using our merchandise👍http://friendsofpakati.com/merchandise
