Rob was moved by the story of our dear friend & supporter, Richard Bland, who has written the book ‘AB Gets His Wings’ to raise awareness of children’s #mentalhealth, and he wanted to get involved to raise vital funds to help our charity. Rob comments “It was an honour to help the Dove Service with this 500 mile challenge. They do such important work helping people in the most difficult times; it seemed even more timely to help during the COVID-19 pandemic when so many people will need your help”.
Well done Rob and what an achievement! Thanks for all your support which will go towards supporting children & adults through their grief.
It’s not too late to support Rob…you can still make a donation HERE >> https://ow.ly/rEjh50AfhRm
