ARRCC’s first Rye Jumble Sale raised just over £100 and gave Dave Woollett ARRCC’s Furniture Warehouse Co-ordinator the opportunity to proudly display his medal for completing the London marathon in 6 hours 19 minutes.

Partially sighted Dave also brought along his newly trained guide dog Jasper to introduce to people. Intrepid Dave is off again this week to compete in a charity tandem bike ride from London to Paris.
