Yorkshire Red Cross

Red Cross

Hello there

I’d be incredibly grateful if you could help us at the British Red
Cross in Yorkshire by helping us promote some sponsored events for the
charity on your intranet, email newsletters an/or by displaying a poster
(Events leaflet MBC, JMYM, Maras, Kili comp) in your premises, please?

The charity raises tens of thousands of pounds a year from these events
which goes to help people rebuild their lives after seeing it devastated
by fire, floods, earthquakes, tsunamis and conflict in Yorkshire, across
the UK and overseas (see: www.redcross.org.uk (
https://www.redcross.org.uk/ )).

> Mountain Bike Challenge – Sun 7 October 2012
Challenging and muddy 23 mile off-roading course especially designed by
the Forestry Commision for the optimum experience. Set in the stunning
Dalby Forest, near Pickering, North Yorkshire. Suitable for experts and
daring novices alike. Bike hire available.

experience ever.
