Mum’s 80th Birthday Ramble

23 October 2017

When your Mum comes to you and asks for a flag for her 80th birthday, you just know she is up to something! To explain, my Mum is an avid walker, and when in 2016 Countryfile organised a Ramble for BBC Children in Need in October, her great organisational mind went into overdrive. For her 80th birthday, in October this year, she would organise her very own Countryfile Ramble and raise money for Children in Need.

So a year down the line and Mum asks for a flag. Now, working for a company who make flags I felt she needed her own bespoke flag, so we designed her a small windchaser flag for her birthday, which incorporated Pudsey bear and the Countryfile logo, as well as mentioning that it was her 80th birthday and her Ramble.

Mum’s Ramble was a great success, held in beautiful Bishopdale in the Yorkshire Dales, Mum invited all her walking friends and their families. There were 33 walkers varying in age from 84 to 10 many coming from just over the hill in Coverdale where the resident Coverdale Walkers turned out in force.

The 6 mile ramble culminated in an 80th birthday afternoon tea for everyone (and a few more) where the baking prowess of my dear mother was firmly in evidence! A fabulous day, one to remember and we raised £650 for BBC Children in Need in the process.
