Cycling 500 Miles in 5 Days

A huge congratulations to the team of 7 riders who took on the epic challenge of cycling From London to Mont Saint Michel, completing 500 Miles in 5 Days!

The team had a collective 8 punctures and one broken tyre. They pushed themselves to their limits and raised over £5000 for Reach, smashing their target. 

Virtual London Marathon

Mandy, Flower Pod Southwell volunteer, recently completed the Virtual London Marathon, hiking 26.2 miles along the River Trent.

Mandy said:

“I successfully completed my 26.2 marathon walk on Sunday. The weeks of training did pay off , and despite the rain, I was really pleased with the time I did it in.

Celebration gift donation

Reach Newark Volunteer Helen and her husband Malcolm recently celebrated with almost 100 friends and family at their Ruby Wedding Anniversary party. They decided that, rather than ask for gifts, they would invite guests to donate to Reach and another charity. What a fantastic way to celebrate – congratulations Helen and Malcolm on your Ruby Anniversary and thank you for raising £325.50 for Reach!
