Figures include gift aid

Huge thanks to the organisers and to everyone who helped make this year’s Family Fun Day at Hebburn Sports Club such a fabulous event. And of course to everyone who came along and simply enjoyed themselves. All of you are helping our Trust to raise awareness about stalking.

C2C from Whitehaven to Newcastle

Over May bank holiday weekend, ten of Alice’s extended family and friends cycled the Coast-to-Coast in her memory and to raise money for the Trust. The C2C route from Whitehaven to North Shields is over 140 miles long, passing across the Lake District and over the Pennines as well as through the centre of Newcastle where Alice lived. It was a tough challenge—but at least the weather was favourable—except for the 30mph headwind!

The event raised a fantastic £4306 for the Trust. You can still visit their MyDonate page.

Jane and Bob Hopper walked the Coast to Coast in May to raise money both for the Trust and for Cancer research. They are very close to their phenomenal £8000 target.

We would like to say a huge thank you to the girls from Leicester High School for their year of fundraising events for the Trust, resulting in an amazing £5035 donation.

Fun run at the BUCS Nationals

British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) is the national governing body for Higher Education sport in the UK.

On February 16-18, over 6000 students descended on Sheffield for this year's BUCS Nationals, featuring championship events in a variety of sports, and we were delighted that the Alice Ruggles Trust was chosen to be the Charity Partner for the annual mascot race.

The picture shows some of the competitors lining (?) up for the first heat. This delightfully crazy event has raised over £650 for the Trust.
