WITH A LITTLE HELP
FROM OUR FRIENDS...
This year Dominique Muir took on
the challenge of the Derby 10k
which she successfully completed
and raised over £500 for Acorn
– well done, Dominique! Past
Committee
member
Amanda
Finney and Christine Downing
are cycling for Acorn mainly
on the Scenic Paci c Highway in
October. They start in Canada and aim to cycle the 2,000 miles
to the Mexican border in approximately a month. If you wish to
sponsor Amanda and Christine, please visit their Just Giving Page
CALLING ALL CYCLISTS!
We have had great fun this year
spotting our Acorn Cycle tops:
they have been to Turkey, Majorca,
Holy Island and not forgetting
this year’s Tour De France. Due to
the very generous sponsorship
from Lights4Fun, Knight Frank,
t i l e s a n d m o s a i c s . c o . u k ,
Spring eld Healthcare Group
and Ultimate English, 95% of the £40
purchase price goes to Acorn so please splash out and buy! The cycle
tops are available in a range of sizes and can be ordered fromour website
, from Chevin Cycles in Harrogate, Skipton and
Otley or at The Local Pantry in Huby.
A great birthday or Christmas
present for the cyclist in your life!
ACORN HITS
