A Herriot Proposal!
Back in December, Jess and Stuart took on a 24km bike ride to fundraise and raise awareness of Herriot Hospice Homecare. Following the loss of his Brother, it was important to Stuart to support a local charity that provides bereavement support for families who are going through grief. The couple wanted to do something positive together to celebrate the memory of their loved one and support their local community.
The 24km route started at Studley Royal and finished in Ripon, the finishing point was particularly poignant as this is where Stuart’s Brother's and Dad's ashes were scattered. Upon completion of the challenging route on a cold and windy December day, when the couple reached the finish line they marked the occasion by laying roses in the river and watching them float down stream. Following this special moment, Jess turned around to find Stuart had got down on one knee! Stuart proposed and of course, Jess said yes!
