On Thursday 28th July, the MRN with MSPC held a Charity Bootcamp event to raise money for Home-Start Central Bedfordshire. The event was held outside MRN's UK Head Office where (brave) participants took part in fun games and exercises in fancy dress, whilst those who wanted to show their support waved pompoms and cheered from the sidelines. There were plenty of cakes and refreshments to keep energy levels high, which came in handy for the ultimate showdown - the tug of war! Over £200 was raised and Martin from MSPC matched every £1 raised by doing an exercise!
Home-Start Central Bedfordshire is a charity that supports families with small children who are struggling for many different reasons, including:
- Isolation and loneliness
- Poverty or financial issues
