Truly Amazing Feats: running and cycling for Archway

Archway’s volunteers and supporters are truly incredible raising funds in challenging circumstances. In the last few months they have raised just over £1380 for Archway so far through various events.

Dee’s Otmoor Challenge

Our amazing volunteer Dee Hazell  (pictured above) walked 7.5 miles for the Otmoor Challenge to raise funds to tackle loneliness in Oxford, just ten months since she fractured her kneecap. There’s still time to donate to Archway and show support to Dee. Thank you, Dee!

Harry published the above map of one of his longest training routes so far on Facebook… amazing! We think 100K is the furthest that anyone has ever run for Archway. Thank you, Harry. Please support him via his Virgin Money giving page.
