Thank you to all who have taken part, as over the last few years over £80,000 has been raised for charity.

This year members are supporting:

  • Mesothelioma UK - a national resource dedicated to supporting people with this asbestos cancer, providing specialist Mesothelioma information, support & improved care and treatment.

We hope members will support this initiative in some way, as all participation is fantastic and all donations count.
There are some fund raising events already planned as a few members have signed up to some tough challenges and we have social events happening too.

We can all make a difference to those suffering with an asbestos related cancer and to children with a life limiting tumor.
