Focus 10K has blown us away!

12 June 2020

Thank you to all of our incredible supporters for taking part in our virtual Focus 10k. We are delighted to announce that with your support we were able to raise over £30,000 for young people with complex disabilities. Thank you too if you sponsored someone who took part, or if you donated your entry fee. Despite not being able to welcome you to Borde Hill this year, we loved seeing so many updates on social media. A huge thanks to Focus Group also who matched the funds raised.

We were overwhelmed by the support we received with people taking on 10ks, 5ks, cycling hundreds of miles, running laps of the garden with wheelbarrows, and even planting melons in Australia over a 5k distance.

Young people supported by Chailey Heritage were among those who got involved. Mikey, who lives with us year-round, completed 10 minutes in his stander and covered 5k on site on his trike. Sisters Siena and Izzie who, like Mikey are also wheelchair-users, walked and cycled as part of their family's 111km challenge. 

To see how everyone got on, do take a look at our updates on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
