On Monday 11th September 2017, Dave Ascough and Daren Cox set off on their intrepid 2000 mile journey to visit 17 "Air Ambulance Bases and HQ's" in order to raise awareness for this amazing charity. 


Even today the "Air Ambulance" does not receive any Government Funding, it relies totaly on donations kindly given by the public!


The Bikes "an Africa Twin and a Cross Tourer" were supplied by Honda UK, and RST helped out with Motorcycle Clothing.


Their jorney started in the rain at the North West Air Ambulance, and the weather for the week was not due to get any better as "Storm Aileen" was looming!

Please help these guys to raise even more awareness, and don't forget, every donation however small makes a Big Difference - It Saves Lives!

Thank You

Featured in the "Cumbria Life" Magazine

Stafford House and it's interior were lucky enough to feature in the August 2015 edition of the "Cumbria Life" magazine, along with a little peek at the Gardens.  


So we were both surprised and delighted when we were asked if this time they could focus more on the Gardens at Stafford House - so of course "yes" was the answer!
