Centre Manager Shelley Carter explained that although each trainee’s session is paid for and money is raised through the tearooms and shop, the income thus received just covers the core operating costs. Added “extras” such as capital expenditure on machinery, furniture, appropriate reading books etc. has to be met by fundraising. Leading from the front, Shelley is one of the walkers.

The Hadleigh team consists of:

  • Shelley Carter
  • Carl Carter
  • Harriet Carter
  • Elaine Johnson
  • Charlotte Johnson
  • Beverly Warren

Sponsors are needed. If you would like to sponsor this event, please contact one of the walkers or drop your contribution in at the training centre. They will be very grateful.
