Lisa Eccleshare, one of the ladies we interviewed for the Daytrippers Bolton Charity video, is very keen and reportedly fantastic at getting things for charities and fundraisers free or for discounted rates.
On 1st May Lisa asked me for the routes I’m taking and the towns I’m stopping over at for the cycling route and the running route. Since then she’s managed to contact the following B&B’s along the routes and get the following:
- Saturday 28th June – Kirkby Stephen
Fat Lamb – Half price B&B £60p for a double room or if all rooms are not fully booked then the room will be free
- Sunday 29th June – Ingleby Cross
Parkhouse Country Guesthouse – Half price B&B £37.50 for a double room
- Monday 30th June – Robin Hoods Bay
Caravan in Filey – Aidy has already arranged for us to stay with his folks in his caravan in Filey
- Wednesday 2nd July – Richmond
Bridgedown House B&B – Completely free B&B for me and Aidy
- Thursday 3rd July – Kirkby Stephen
Fat Lamb – Completely free B&B for me and Aidy
As you can see these places have been INCREDIBLY kind! Lisa has also been incredible I cannot be more grateful for her time in this.
We still have two more B&B’s to try and nail but if we end up paying full rates for these I’m still hugely grateful for what we have already – saving us over £200!!!
she certainly is a good one! Well done Lisa
She’s an incredible lady. I’ll thank her some way or another when I complete the challenge – or wake up in hospital haha!
I think its you that needs our thanks too. No hospitals this time please 🙂
