Challenge Yourself 2020

Let’s make 2020 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 2020 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 2020 – run, trek, swim or cycle 2020 miles or 20 miles for 20 days. The opportunities are endless.
