Thank you to the family of Samuel Hadley who have made a £200 donation to Buds in his memory. Samuel loved going to our Queensridge club and the donation will benefit the clients at that club directly.
In May the Tipton and Coseley Building Society very kindly donated £500 to Buds to benefit our Tipton club. Since then we have purchased a range of activities to benefit our clients who attend the club at Walker Grange Tipton. We are extremely grateful to the Tipton and Coseley for their support.

Tough Mudders- Alan Jones and Carl Hampton approached us a few months back to ask if they could raise money for Buds by completing the Tough Mudder Challenge. Tough Mudder is a 10-12 mile mud and obstacle course, not for the faint hearted! Obviously we were delighted to be chosen by them. In May Alan and Carl actually completed a 20K Tough Mudder and raised a FANTASTIC £735.00 for Buds of which we are extremely grateful. Thank you Alan, Carl and all their supporters from ever
