Thank you for visiting my Just Giving page

I know that I am not alone in being enormously proud to work for a charity that does so much to care for our special places and bring them to life for our visitors.

Dyrham Park, the special place that I have the privilege of leading urgently needs to replace the leaking lead roof of the mansion and much of the stonework that supports it at a total project cost of £3.54m.

As the General Manager, I'd like to make a personal contribution to the cause and put the 'fun' into fundraising. On Sunday 15th June I will be embarking on a 7 stage challenge to run the entire 102 miles of the Cotswold Way National Trail to contribute to the overall project fundraising target of £500,000.

Please come and join me for a stage, offer me a lift to the start (or a lift home afterwards) and dig deep and help us protect our beautiful Dyrham for generations to come.

Myself and the team invite you to join us at Dyrham in 2015 when we are looking forward to showing you how your donation has helped the big roof project.
