Welcome to Step it Up for Ollie 2021 unfortunately with restrictions still in place we are unable to organise our annual run. So just for fun this year we are running our challenge from the 5th of June to the 26th of June and we are asking you to count your steps. Also anything you can donate to help with Ollie’s ongoing care would be greatly appreciated. Ollie’s care needs remain the same with no avenue to Raise funds we hope you can help us for more on Ollie’s story please visit our website www.friendsofollie.com
