This year we are excited to be taking our Shine fundraising walk further afield to Wakefield! The theme this year is all about bringing out the hero in us all! A 8 Mile Walk may just be the challenge you need and if you want to take it a step further sign up for our Malawi extra Challenge which will be to carry a basket or bucket as far as possible, balanced on top of your head!
These events are always great fun and with goody bags for those who raise more than £25 the competitions on to raise vital funds for the coming year!
