Congratulations to the Troubador staff who raised over £1000.00 for charity this weekend.

Troubador staff are celebtrating after completing their 15 mile sponsored walk in the Derbyshire dales on behalf of Arthritis UK.

Jennifer Liptrot (Publishing Assistant), Terry Compton (Head of Production), Amy Cooke (Publishing Assistant) and Amy Chadwick (Ebook Programme Manager) all completed the walk, accompanied by some friends and family. They raised over £1000.00 for charity, and wish to thank all the Matador authors who so kindly donated.

Jennifer Liptrot said: 'We have been so touched by the generosity of our authors, and all who sponsored us. This is a cause close to our hearts and the support we have received has been amazing.'

A member of the Troubador staff was diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis and Ankylosing Spondylitis (genetic inflammatory autoimmune diseases) while in her early twenties - which is why Troubador are undertook the challenge. If you would like more information, you can visit the team's page at www.justgiving.com/TroubadorTeam
