    Sponsored events:

    In 2011 / 12, four people achieved extraordinary feats and were all generously sponsored. The following have our huge admiration and great thanks:

    In 2012:

    Hannah Durden not only completed the Iron Man Challenge, an incredible triumph in itself, but was the second woman to finish. She raised £1656 for our project.
    Pat Smith walked some 500 miles of the pilgrims’ Camino to Santiago de Compostela, doing it the hard way (no hotels), averaging 15.3 miles a day. He raised a massive £5000.

    In 2011:

    Robert Lee walked the entire Coast-to-Coast Path, which runs for 192 miles through the Lake District, the Pennines and the Yorkshire Moors, in just two weeks. He raised £2000 for our project.
    Ros White completed the Harlow Tye Rotary Club Charity Abseil, bravely descending 110 feet off Harlow Water Tower (for the second time!) and raised £1200.
