During the last few months our dedicated supporters have been taking part in a number of different running, cycling and trekking charity challenge events. Take a look below to find out how they all got on.

Cycling success
ChildHope would like to thank Joe Clarke, Rhys Bowen, Robert Scoltock, Steve Bolton and Ollie Houston (pictured below) who successfully completed a gruelling 10-day cycling challenge at the end of April.

The team cycled all the way from John O'Groats in Scotland to Land's End in England in aid of ChildHope and RAFT - raising an amazing £7,000.

Trekking Mount Kilimanjaro
A huge thank you to Greg Pidgeon and friends who recently climbed Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa.

Greg is raising vital funds for our work supporting children by organising many fundraising and sponsorship events including Battle of the Bands, sponsored indoor climbing events and a launch party. So far Greg has raised over £900 towards our work supporting vulnerable children.

Running for children
ChildHope would also like to thank three dedicated runners who between them raised over £2,000 towards ChildHope's work with girls, boys and youth.

In May, Jacob Hughes and Harry Tattersall-Smith ran the Geneva Marathon in an impressive 4 hours 10 minutes and 4 hours 2 minutes respectively.

'I would recommend running a marathon for ChildHope to anyone, it is a fun experience and extremely rewarding; although the reason we are smiling in the photo is that we were just about to receive our free massage! ChildHope is a great charity and we are proud to have run and raised money for them.'

Another wonderful supporter Liz Webb ran the Ranelagh Harrier Richmond Half Marathon in May. Congratulations and thanks for your support Liz.
