Apprentices announce headline events for fundraising campaign
On the weekend of September the 7th and 8th, the AWASA group of apprentices from Leonardo’s will be launching two of their biggest fundraising events of the year for Mind in Somerset. Starting on Saturday the 7th, they have arranged to compete in the gruelling Three Peaks challenge and will scale three of the tallest mountains in Wales, Scotland and England in just 24 hours. This means that over this short time they will be driving 466 miles, walking 23 miles and ascending a huge 3,400 metres to complete the challenge. Please support their efforts by donating here.
On Sunday they have arranged two charity bike rides around Somerset, one of 60 miles and one of 30. Both of these start at the Leonardo’s main gate and finish at the Rose and Crown in South Petherton. Entry is £15 and you can sign up by emailing [email protected]
AWASA have held many fundraising events for us through this year, and we have been delighted to be one of their Charities of the Year. We would like to say a big thank you from Mind in Somerset to everyone involved – and good luck!
