Thank you to everyone for making the Herts Hike such a success

Thank you to everyone for making the 21st annual Herts Hike such a success yesterday.  We hope all those who took part enjoyed the event & give a very BIG THANK YOU to all our amazing volunteers who made it all possible.  We had 236 walkers who took part, with 199 taking on the challenge of 5 miles or more and so far we have raised an impressive £5594 for the Honduras project (exceeding our £5000 target).  This an amazing feat but we know there is still more to come.

We couldn't do it without our volunteers - the end of a busy day!

To donate via Text – send a message to 70070 with our code OXHH99 followed by £2 or whatever amount you wish.
