The High Sheriff's Charity Ride
The High Sheriff of Buckinghamshire finishes her charity ride through the county
The week long ride began at the Cowper and Newton Museum in Olney on Sunday 16 September and finished eight days later in the village of Turville. Over 100 people gathered at Turville Court to welcome the High Sheriff, as Dick Smith, the Beaconfield's Town Crier announced her arrival. The posse of six riders were warmly greeted by the welcome party hosts Mike and Carol Clare and guests.
"We are so impressed with Carolyn's achievement, she has riden over 90 miles and visited 22 projects during the course of her journey. Her endeavour has created a fund to support children and families and this will have a lasting impact on lives of people in Milton Keynes" Julia Upton, Chief Executive MK Community Foundation
The projects visited included Newport Pagnell Youth Group, Ride High and the Urban Farm.
"Words cannot fully express the general sense of gratitude and humbleness I feel at the the true generosity shown to me by everyone I have met" Carolyn Cumming, High Sheriff of Buckinghamshire.
