Joe's sponsored cycle
A massive thank you to Joe Dolan who, to mark the one year anniversary of the Baby Box in Scotland, cycled from our shop in Partick, all the way to the Scottish Parliament on behalf of Birth, Baby & Beyond.
Joe set himself a target of £250 and ended up raising a total of £360!!! Not only did he smash his target by £110 - he also received a signed bottle of whisky from First Minister Nicola Sturgeon that he also kindly donated to our charity!
Here is the very lovely Joe and wife Margaret (one of our very own retail volunteers) in store presenting a cheque for £360, and bottle of whisky to our founder Natasha Earle!
Thanks again Joe for organising and carrying out this amazing fund raising activity and for supporting families in need in Glasgow.
