A big update on loads of amazing stuff

14 May



Like all special needs chairs, this one is a triumph of elegant design. At least Wes has great hair.


It’s been a busy old time for Wes, who has been amazingly busy with physio over the last few weeks, putting into practice some of the new skills he learned during his two weeks at The Bobath Centre in London.  He’s also had the joy of trying out several new chairs and has a new walker on order.

Whilst Wes has been working hard, others have been working even harder to help him out…


  • Massive thanks to the great people at Nuffield Health, who put on their inaugural ‘Toughfield’ event in aid of Wes.  Furthermore, they’ve donated a year’s free membership to the beer festival auction (see below).  Amazing stuff.


  • A big shout out to everyone who ran The Leeds Half Marathon last Sunday – both from The Station Pub and The Bank of England.   It’s a tough old race, with a lot of hard hills, so hats off to everyone who put themselves through it!  Thanks guys.


  • Anne Little at HSBC has signed herself up to an amazing sequence of fundraising events – starting off with 102 km bike ride, the Otley Sportiva on the 17th May.   Thanks a million Anne!


  • The brilliant Rachel Robinson is organising a Girls Night In party on Friday 16th May.  Huge thanks Rachel!


  • Coming up very shortly – The Guiseley Lions Beer Festival @ Coopers, this Friday (16th), Saturday and Sunday.  Tickets are still available here.  £5 entry gets you a souvenir glass, two free drinks and a selection of great beers to choose from.  Plus an auction – featuring a year’s free gym membership and a signed Leeds United shirt, to name but a few!


  • And  – the crowning glory of May Bank Holiday – Guiseley Music Festival @ The Station Pub on Sunday 25th May.  This promises to be an absolutely fantastic day, with a great line up courtesy of Tony and team.  More details here – a great day out for anyone.


Massive, massive thanks everyone.

Alongside all of this, we’re trying to figure out the best time to take Wes our to St Louis for the SDR operation.  Unfortunately, we didn’t get our preferred dates of July or August due to waiting lists – so more on this to follow.
