Newsletter October 2018

As the weather was so beautiful, we spent plenty of therapeutic time out in the allotment. This time in nature is so important for the health and mental wellbeing of our families, not to mention it is so much fun for the children to get their hands dirty to grow home produce!

Herongrange Rutland Water Walk

Maxine Cannell and the team at Herongrange organised the Rutland Charity Walk this month. They walked a staggering 17 miles in 6 ½ hours in varied terrain and conditions to raise over £1,000 for the charity. Jack the dog also came along for the journey, providing much-needed moral support during those last difficult miles! We are very proud of your achievement and thank you for raising awareness for NC TLC Trust.

We are very grateful, not to mention excited, to have Steve as a voice for our charity! Thank you Steve!
