Cameron & Arthur Raise £1000 on sponsored walk
Cameron and Lorraine his wife have been holidaying in Crete for 24 years and our two boys have enjoyed lots of great times there. Last year Cameron decided that after meeting Ged and Julie at one of Matt and John’s (The Uphighs) shows in the White Lady Taverna, that he would like to do something to raise money for Sara’s Hope Foundation so that other children could experience what our boys have had. Cameron and his friend Arthur decided that they would walk from Rethymnon Harbour to Fantastico Taverna and back down the mountain via Maroulas and Adele back to the White Lady. They completed the walk on Saturday (3/6/17) and were rewarded with a big beer and a warm welcome, as always, in the White Lady. We would like to thank all our family (home and abroad), friends and colleagues for their very generous sponsorship and to let you know that the boys raised £1000 for this great charity
