Throughout the year

Challenge Yourself 2019

Let’s make 2019 one to remember! Challenge yourself to do something a little different throughout the year. It can be something that benefits the whole community, like baking and selling 2019 cupcakes throughout the year and donating the proceeds to the Trussell Trust. Or you could set yourself a physical challenge and incorporate the sum of 2019 – run, trek, swim or cycle 2019 miles or 201 miles in 9 days. The opportunities are endless.

18th – 19th May 2019
