The funds raised on the day will help British Red Cross to offer some amazing services to vulnerable people in Berkshire. Places are limited in number but open to anyone. To secure a place, book online by paying £15 registration fee and commit to raising £100 sponsorship (payable on the day).

Several members of staff and students from Bracknell & Wokingham College will be taking part. Campbell Christie CBE, Principal said: “We are really pleased to be able to support this worthwhile cause and welcome local people in to our beautiful building. Our vision as a college is to be in the heart of our community – what better way to demonstrate this than to invite others to join our students and staff in raising money for a charity that is helping people locally as well as having a hugely positive impact globally.”
