Trustees Running The Rat Race for T21


On 11th May 2019, helped by some amazing family and friends, two of our trustees, Miranda Rock and Laura Tilley, ran the notorious Rat Race to raise funds for T21 and our goal to build a cafe with a difference.

The Rat Race at Burghley House is the world’s largest assault course; covering 20 miles and offering 200 monster obstacles – it is not for the faint-hearted… Completing the course took over 5 hours and they faced some serious challenges along the way.Thanks to all the extraordinary efforts of their fellow team-members, together they managed to raise over £100,000.

We were overwhelmed by all the support we received.. a huge thank you to all our competitors and a host of generous donors, your involvement was amazing on the day and your generosity has given us the war chest we needed to take our vision forward.
