Portman Square Garden Party


Wednesday, 13th June 2012


After a week of seemingly endless rain, the sun shone on the righteous for the 500 guests who attended the Portman Square Garden Party and a resounding £14,000 was raised from raffles and auctions held on the evening. The event was sponsored by Hyatt Regency London Churchill, the Grazing Goat, Seddons, Savills, Selfridges & Co and Home House – we are hugely grateful for everyone’s hard work and support.


With thanks to Charlotte Fielding for the photographs:

Cycle with us around East Anglia

Saturday 28th April – Wednesday 2nd May, 2012

Cycle Ride around East Anglia

Stalwart supporter and trustee Dan Wiggins organised his annual fundraising cycle ride and this is what it entailed:


We will be cycling in the region of 50 miles per day, starting in Peterbourgh and bed and breakfasting in Hunstanton, Cromer, Beccles & Ipswich finishing in Cambridge. There are good train links to many of the places on route. (Peterbourgh, Kings Lynn, Ipswich & Cambridge). As per the previous years it is an amateur cycle ride with plenty of stops and refreshments on route. Our much appreciated support crew will carry luggage from the morning to the evening location. Whilst it will be testing it should be fun.

In 2010 we raised in excess of £60,000 and in 2011 just over £20,000. Details on how this and other money has been spent and the reasons for raising these funds can be found on the BTRC website www.wayahead-btrc.org or my rather outdated and soon to be re-freshed web site www.mindovermiles.org.

More details of the 2012 cycle ride to follow soon …
