Competition Winners 2016
Alan from Stroud purchased his Five Valleys Walk tickets before the event and was automatically entered into a competition to win a Microsoft tablet, courtesy of Lister Communications. This is what he had to say:
I am absolutely stunned but delighted to win this prize; I am going to put some ‘In the Night Garden’ on it and let Jackson have it for when we’re away in the camper van!
Chris from Stroud also purchased his Five Valleys Walk tickets before the event and was automatically entered into a competition to win a signed Gloucester Rugby shirt courtesy of Mitsubishi Motors.
Kat from Gloucester took part in the walk with a group of her friends and work colleagues and raised over £1,500 in sponsorship for Meningitis Now. In doing so, Kat’s team won the Top Fundraiser competition; here is a picture of her collecting her hot air balloon ride voucher, courtesy of Bristol Balloons.
Our team had such a great day doing the Five Valleys Walk (especially when we stopped for ice cream at Standish Woods) and we are so pleased to have helped raise funds for such a worthwhile cause that helps so many
We were overwhelmed with the amazing support we received from local businesses, who donated so many raffle prizes that were up for grabs on the day of the walk. Stroud Brewery also supported us by donating free pints on the day to those that raised £30 in sponsorship before the walk. Thank you to every one who took part in our competitions this year, to the many local businesses who supported our cause and to Stroud Brewery for the free pints.
Alan, Chris and Kat
