WHERE IS MY MONEY GOING?
Charity Widehorizons provides life-changing adventures for children and young people.
Currently, 80 per cent of people in the UK live in urban areas meaning many are becoming disengaged with the natural world around them.
Widehorizons offers day visits and residential courses to schools.
Additionally, they also offer an Outreach Programme where Widehorizons' tutors bring adventure to schools, using even the smallest of outdoor spaces to help children learn.
WHAT'S PROVIDED ON THE DAY?
- An arrowed course
- Event management and safety
- Water and feeding stations
- Shuttle bus back to start locations
- A hot breakfast on the finish line
- A welcoming and friendly atmosphere
- The chance to see three Widehorizons centres
