The Friday and Saturday of 19th and 20th April 2019 will live for a very long time in the memories of all of us who were involved with Bashing the Beds Boundary in the fight against Motor Neurone Disease.
Seven teams started at 10.00 a.m. on Good Friday and took on the complete boundary relay and all came home by 10.00 a.m. on the Saturday, so within the twenty-four hours hoped for!
An hour later around eighty-five more people joined many of The Bounders for a further final five mile run.
The weather was glorious and everyone at Picts Hill House enjoyed a BBQ and were entertained by our very own Bashing Band, Flaky Jake.
We were all inspired to take on the challenge by Debbie Burrells and as a result at least £65,000 has been raised and is being donated to The Motor Neurone Disease Association.
We are sad to report that Debbie lost her struggle with MND on Thursday 23rd May but not before she had her last wish granted and presented the cheque to MNDA on the very same day.
Debbie fought the bravest battle against the cruellest of diseases and did so with amazing dignity never once complaining about her condition and only ever worrying about her family and friends who would be left behind.
Debbie will be sorely missed by everyone who knew her and has left behind her the most amazing legacy having raised both awareness and a considerable amount of money. A truly inspirational lady.
Donations to MNDA can still be made in Debbie’s memory, just click the link HERE.

Once you have entered the challenge we want to try and help you to raise as much money as possible whilst at the same time keeping track of all of the money raised by everyone taking part. This applies to teams and individuals alike.
We have chosen Just Giving as our partner for the event because we are able to have a Team page and then all teams/participants can join their own Fundraising pages to it.
So please visit https://www.justgiving.com/ and create your own fundraising page, if you don’t already have one, and then ask to join our team. Our team name is Bashing The Beds Boundary. You set your own target but your total raised will add to ours so we can keep track on how we are all doing.
We can supply you with the Beds Bashing logo to add in to your page to help strengthen the brand, just let us have your email address so we can email it over as soon as possible.
If you need any help please email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to speak to someone please call Martyn on 07860 261991 and he will give you any help that you need.
