Supporting the Croyde Scrumptious Trail

What a beautiful day of weather for the Croyde Scrumptious Trail on Sunday 3rd June!

 

We were delighted once again to be one of the main sponsors for this fantastic fundraising event for the North Devon NHS Healthcare Trust, which was organised by the Charity Over and Above. The 10 mile walk/run took us from the beautiful village of Croyde then a steep climb which saw beautiful views over the North Devon coast, onto the Village of Georgeham across the top of the beautiful Putsborough beach then over baggy point and back down into Croyde.

The theme for the trail this year was cartoon characters, so the team were dressed up in their Scooby Doo outfits which proved to be a bit warm as temperature’s soared to around 26 degrees! North Devon Manager, Oliver once again ran the course and finished in just over 2 hours.

 

On route we were rewarded with lots of local samples to eat and drink, such as local cider, tasty chili, asparagus soup and chilli chocolate.  Some of our homeowners even joined in with the fun!

 

It was truly a fantastic day and great to support an important charity. 

 

We can't wait to take part again next year!
