We are really looking forward to once again be involved in the St Albans Half Marathon this year. We will be fielding a team of ‘cheer marshals’ to help encourage the runners and walkers and add to the great atmosphere—let us know if you would like to join us in cheering or just drop by and say hello at our stand on the day.
Member Penny Taylor, mum to Charlie who will be joining us as a cheer marshal, will be running the 5K at
the event. Charlie has been helping Penny with her training and aims to run himself next year—to sponsor Penny go to https://cafdonate.cafonline.org/20637
Alison Wilde, local resident and friend of long term supporter of Up on Downs, Trish Hall, has entered the Walking Half Marathon on our behalf. To sponsor Alison go to https://cafdonate.cafonline.org/20520
Richard Thompson, whose daughter Olivia is a friend of member Rose Hopcroft, is kindly running the Half Marathon to raise funds for us. To sponsor Richard go to https://cafdonate.cafonline.org/20639
Thanks so much to our runners and all their sponsors!
Calling all secondary schoolers around North Herts and Stevenage! We have been successful obtaining a grant to open a new SEN youth club in Hitchin on Friday evenings from next term. All activities will be free for secondary age young people with SEN. More details will be available soon.

Many of our children will spot their own creation among Lots of Festive Socks.
