Stroud to Paris – Cycling for Charity

Harriet Walker is one of our longest standing home visiting volunteers. In June she and her husband cycled the 300 miles to Paris to raise funds for  Home-Start.  You can find out more about her sponsorship result at:

Harriet in PAris

Harriet is also keen to advertise the need for more volunteers to join the Home-Start programme. ‘It’s been an incredibly rewarding 15 years, and I would highly recommend it. But you don’t have to do the cycling – unless you want to!’

Harriet was nominated as a trustee of Home-Start and so is now helping to govern the charity.
