In the last 12 months thank you SE Fitness as we raised in excess of £1500 for charity. Most of this went to Alzheimer’s Society which was our nominated charity for 2019, we really wanted to get help for veterans and that’s exactly what we did. We also raised over £300 for Acacia Family Support with our charity Buggy Walk and £200 for Snuffles Hedgehog Rescue.
Your Leaders have chosen St Basils as our charity for 2020. St Basils works with young people to help them find and keep a home, develop their skills, build their confidence, increase opportunities and prevent homelessness. There are a number of St Basils centres within the local area. I’m not sure we’ve supported a homeless charity before and it seems particularly pertinent to me at this time and as this time of year.
Our first fundraising event for St Basils was last week with our Moonlight ‘Walk to Pub’. Thank you to the Walkers who raised £69 and got our fundraising activities for Christmas 2019 off to a great start.
Two more fundraising events during this festive period so please join us for:
- Christmas Eve Charity Walk – 9.00am Tuesday 24th December with Jenny
- Boxing Day Charity Run – 10.00 for 10.15 Thursday 26th December with Helyn, John and your Run Leaders!
All donations from both events will go to St Basils charity for young people.
