We’re Registered!!

We are very proud to announce that we are now a fully registered Charity. After long hard weeks we managed to get through the process and we are very happy.

We would like to thank everyone associated with the very first race we had back in October who have worked so hard to raise the lions share for the £5000 needed to be able to register our charity. So lad’s you know who you are thank you!!!

We would also like to thank each and every one of #teamnuts who have bought a wristband, Pen, Trolley coin, Tee shirt or calendar because every penny counts and your contribution is as important as any other.

Please keep buying, keep fundraising and keep running for us!! We LOVE you all!!
