Who would have thought that Willie and Andrew would have won a style award?!? But that is exactly what they managed to do whilst covering the 100 miles on the Pro route of the Scottish Tour Ride in September. The trophy was sponsored by Rudy Project accessories and is awarded at the finish line for the team in the most eye-catching cycle wear. It gave Andrew a chance to explain what Katie’s Trust is doing to help patients with a DIPG – many thanks to the cyclist who gave us £25 on the back of that interview. Andrew and Willie now need to work out a rota for having the trophy on their mantelpieces! Well done guys!!

Last weekend Granny, Grandpa, cousin Cammie and the Baldy Bikers (aka Johnny & Dave) rode the forty seven miles from Glasgow Green to Murrayfield. It was a great effort and helped raised £1500+ for Katie’s Trust – more than covers the money we paid out last week to help a family go on holiday with their daughter. Thanks very much to all of you, it was a fantastic achievement. Here are some photos for the timebeing – the Baldy Bikers might overcome their modesty and post some too!!

Steve Hayden, of Hayden’s Bar, Pomeroy, organises an annual vintage tractor rally on the Sunday of the first May Bank Holiday, with proceeds from entries going to charity. Steve heard about Katie’s Trust through one of his friends and asked if he could donate the money from the 2013 Rally to the Trust. The weekend was a great success and raised £2,210, plus a further £15 that came in from the ice-cream van! Many thanks to Steve, all the tractor drivers and all their supporters.no comments
