Need a hand! Hi there I hope you don't mind me contacting you but my 14 year old son Alex Crome has just been offered an amazing opportunity to go on a month long expedition to Borneo. Alex is very excited about the opportunity and now has a huge task ahead of him. He has just over a year to raise the funds, which he will be doing himself. With this in mind he will be fundraising, commencing this Sunday afternoon with a car wash/ valeting service outside our house at 17 Moberly Road. If you would like to book a slot for this weekend or a future date we would be delighted to hear from you. Alex is also available for gardening, cleaning, odd jobs, dog walking and many other tasks so if you'd like some extra help please do get in touch. Thanks! Helen Crome (You decide! ebbles)
