We are proud to sponsor the JoGLE4Hospice 2015
Rossendale man, Richie Watts has teamed up with his two brothers and four friends to complete the JoGLE4Hospice 2015 event in aid of Rossendale Hospice.
This event will see the team cycle 874 miles in just 7 days from John O’Groats to Lands’ End. The three Watts brothers along with their friends are completing the challenge in memory of their father, Jim Watts who was a founder of Rossendale Hospice and continued to support them until he died in 2013.
