LEWIS LEAP DOG SHOW
THE FIRST LEWIS LEAP DOG SHOW WAS A HUGE SUCCESS...THANKS TO YOU ALL!
And we hope that everyone enjoyed it as much as we did. There was such a lovely atmosphere with so many happy owners, gorgeous dogs and busy volunteers. We were totally overwhelmed by the fantastic turnout, thank you so much for supporting our charity and keeping Lewis in everyone's thoughts.
Our friend took lots of beautiful photographs on the day, which we'd like to share with you all.

CHRISTINA'S SPRINT TRIATHALON - POSTPONED DUE TO BAD WEATHER.
AWAITING NEW DATE FROM EVENT ORGANISERS
On Sunday 8th of August I will be taking my Lewis Leap and swimming (open water eeek!) / cycling/ running my first ever triathlon.
For a girl who can barely swim I have a lot of work to do in the next 94 days- but where there’s a will there’s a way 🤣
I’m so grateful for any donations you can make ... even a few pounds would make all the difference to this fantastic cause!
Wish me luck 💛 xx

LANDS END TO JOHN O'GROATS - JULY 2021
RAISED OVER £5,000!
A group of 7 enthusiastic cyclists (not athletes!), Barrie Wharton, Carl Best, Donny McLeod, Ian Dunhill, Iain Miller (Lewis’s Uncle), Jay Talbot and Rob Hooker, took on the Lands End to John O’ Groats Cycle ride over 6 days in support of fledgling youth charity, Lewis Leap. Covering approximately 150 miles each day, with stops at Taunton, Shrewsbury, Kendall, Edinburgh and Aviemore, the team arrived in John O’ Groats on 10 July 2021, two years to the day when Lewis was cruelly taken from our lives.
Please give what you can. Thanks.
INACCESSIBLE PINNACLE - APRIL 2022
RAISED OVER £1,000
Two of Lewis' wonderful uncles and friends were mad enough to think that climbing the Inaccessible Pinnacle on the Isle of Skye was a grand way to spend a weekend and raise funds for Lewis Leap. We say thank goodness for mad uncles!
It's the only one of the 282 Munros that requires ropes to climb, so no easy task.
We were blessed with phenomenal weather and no midges, great result all round!

LITTLE MONKEYS NURSERY LEWIS LEAP HONEY - DECEMBER 2020
RAISED OVER £2,400
Little Monkeys Nursery owner Grace Kerr and her business partner Valerie Broomfield have raised £2,400 by selling jars of their honey to nursery parents with Grace & Valerie matching the amount raised through the honey sales. Kinross based Webster Honey sited the hive on the roof of the nursery in 2019 and due to exceptionally fine Spring & Summer weather, coupled with less pollution over lockdown, a bumper honey crop followed. Lewis was one of the first children to attend Little Monkeys at Cramond enjoying lots of fun times.
