Need help with fundraising and training? We’ve got you covered.
Thank you so much for the incredible organising and cheerfulness from the Macmillan Cancer Support team yesterday. I met some great people, had a lot of laughs, got soaked in the rain then dried out in the sunshine. Already planning to do all the other hikes over the next few years.
