Saddle up

Spare a thought this weekend for Wanstead’s Gabrielle Collard (@dollycreative) who is about to embark on a Land’s End to John O’Groats cycle ride (yes, that’s right, uphill).  She is planning to complete the 860-mile ride in 17 days, all in the aid of the Depression Alliance and the Maria Falco Trust.  You can follow her progress on her site, or donate if you wish through her JustGiving page.

More details to follow when available…
