Sponsored Cycle for Iraq

Our Office Manager, Fiona Bunn, is taking part in a sponsored charity cycle to raise money for our Iraq appeal following the recent crisis. Fiona will be cycling the Petersfield Ups And Downs on 13th July 2014  - a charity cycle ride up, over and through the South Downs National Park around Petersfield.

Here is what she has to say:

“Hello,

I’m taking part in the PUAD: Petersfield Ups and Downs 2014 on 13/07/2014 to raise money for The Foundation for Relief and Reconciliation in the Middle East and I’d really appreciate your support.
