The Kerry family would like to thank everyone involved in the 19 mile boat push which took place on the August bank holiday weekend to raise funds fro the Stroke Association in memory of Tony.

A special thank you to all who sponsored the event, which raised the amazing sum of £11,009.52.

A cheque presentation to the Stroke Association took place at the Swan in Sandhurst last month.

A mini-market at St Nicholas Church raised around £585 which is wonderful considering how wet it was. Thanks to all.
