We’re delighted to share these stats from our 24 Reasons to be Cheerful campaign from Christmas 2020. We loved doing it – it was great to see the sheer variety of contributions, and the response, in viewing figures and, of course, in funds raised. The money will go to the three charities that took part … More More Reasons to be Cheerful…

These are very strange times. Back in February, when we announced we would have to postpone the 24 Hour Inspire due to industrial action, we could not have imagined that a few weeks later, all University teaching would be ‘virtual’, buildings closed, public gatherings banned, and all of us required to stay at home.

In light of this, and of the dilemma … More 24 Hour Inspire 2020 – news

We’d all been checking the weather forecasts rather obsessively in the weeks/days leading up to the 2019 101010 – and right up to the day before the BBC was predicting heavy rain overnight on Saturday (after quite a lot of heavy rain during the week), and all through the race day. But we woke to … More Mud, mud, glorious mud!

This year’s Endcliffe Park 10k (6 October 2019) is the tenth event – the first one was held on 10 October 2010, hence the name! Tim’s Team got involved in 2012, after Tim Richardson was diagnosed with terminal cancer, and we’ve fielded a team every year since. This year, we’re dedicating our running, and our … More Tim’s Team 2019 – this one’s for Jo
That’s our mission, at it’s simplest. We can’t do those things ourselves, but we can raise funds to support the organisations that can. That means charities such as Weston Park Cancer Hospital, which not only provide treatment for cancer patients (and support for them and their families) but conduct clinical research which offers hope for … More Fighting cancer, and supporting people with cancer
