Step into Spring with the Mears Foundation Walks...

This year Melissa Scrivin and Anjie Cutts from Mears head office will be participating in the MF Spring Walks in aid of Alzheimer's Research UK. (ARUK)

Melissa completed the Prudential Ride London - Surrey 100 in July last year - a 100 mile ride following the 2012 London Olympic Road Race course.

This is basically the London Marathon for cyclists - 100 miles in one day (a "Century" ride) being a rite of passage for all road cyclists - and this one is on a grand scale!

Melissa support’s Alzheimer's Research UK, as her Grandad suffered from dementia late in life.

Melissa is a novice cyclist and only started the sport July 2016, so with a year's cycling under her belt it was always going to be fun....!

The Marathon was completed comfortably, but slowly, in just over 8 hours. Melissa managed to raise over £800 for ARUK

You too can support a chosen charity or the Mears Foundation.

The MF Spring walks kicks off on 22nd March.

Delightful afternoon at Kew Gardens For Ann !

Ann Pratt, one of our Christmas raffle winners ventured to the botanical gardens in southwest London last Saturday to enjoy her prize of Prosecco Afternoon Tea and visit to Kew Gardens.

It wasn’t the best day to go as it was cold and raining but nevertheless she had a good day. There was a delightful Thai Orchid display that opened on the day she visited in the Princess of Wales conservatory. The flowers and presentation of them were so pretty. After a wander around the grounds, she hopped on the land train that transports visitors around the grounds and saw all sorts of trees, flowers, bushes, buildings, follies and animals before heading over to the Botanical restaurant to enjoy the Prosecco afternoon tea.

Thank you Ann for your lovely e-mail and your support with our Christmas raffle, it’s so nice to receive such great feedback!
