My story

[p]Hi everyone, anyone that knows my son Stephen, will know how much Stephen loves The Customs House, he would attend every single performance suitable for children if he had his own way, he is well known to all the staff down there. [/p][p]He was inconsolable when he found out that The Customs House was closing due to the current situation and said he would 'walk 1000 miles to get the customs house open again'. We had a chat and decided he could help with fundraising, to support the customs house, to be able to still be able to run once the current situation is over. He will be planning on doing a mile a week, in his walking frame in the next few weeks and then in June he is planning to do a sponsored walk around the park outside of the customs house in June (date to be confirmed)[/p][p]As people may know The Customs House is a charity (also known as 'The customs house charitable trust'). They only receive 10% of their running costs via funding, so they need to make up the other 90% themselves, this usually comes from ticket sales, food and drinks etc, as they are closed for the foreseeable future, they can't raise their own money in the normal way, therefore any money they receive from this sponsored event would be greatly appreciated.[/p]
