Joshua and Philippa support Blue Cross Rehoming Centre

Cast your minds back to July when Joshua and Philippa Kind set themselves a challenge to cycle 200 miles during the month to support the Blue Cross animal rehoming centre in Thirsk.  With a target to raise £200, they cycled up hill and down dale, through rain, wind, hail and shine. Fast forward six weeks and they have collected their donations and are delighted to have raised an impressive £357.25.

Joshua and Philippa enjoyed exploring their local countryside, taking routes from Wensleydale over Grinton Moor to Swaledale, out to Masham, Newton-Le-Willows and Carthorpe. As well as encountering inclement weather, there were occasional breakdowns, so to keep spirits high, they enjoyed the occasional treat, such as a pit stop at Brymor for an ice cream!

As animal lovers, Joshua and Philippa were keen to support Blue Cross who re-home many species of animals, such as dogs, cats, horses, rabbits and hamsters.

The team at Thirsk said: “In times like these, donations are crucial to enable us to continue the work we do for pets.

Thank you so much Joshua and Philippa. You are both amazing! If Joshua and Philippa have inspired you to do a challenge for Blue Cross, please have a look at our website for further information and support”
