Hello to our all family, friends and customers, now it seems that once a year we undertake a significant event to raise money for a chosen charity.  This year it involves "The Great Charity Ride," a cycling event organised by Lion Nathan covering four days and raising money for the New Zealand Downs Syndrome Foundation. This event involves cycling from Christchurch to Queenstown in four days over the following distances commencing 20 March:

Day 1 - ChCh to Jacksons 174km

Day 2 - Jacksons to Franz Josef 186 km

Day 3 - Franz Josef to Haast 104 km

Day 4 - Haast to Queenstown (via Crown Range) 245 km

We are involved in the capacity of Mike riding and Tans as one of two support crew looking after the 10 cyclists on the road.  There is a link below to our fundraising page, we would appreciate you digging deep for this worthy cause and donating what you can.  Surely there's a need to donate given the mammoth task involved in riding the last day alone!  Please contact us if you need any more info otherwise follow your mouse to the link below and help us support this cause.  Every dollar that is raised by the riders will be matched by Lion Nathan!

Thanks for your time!

Mike and Tans
