We are raising money for the Derbyshire Children’s Holiday Centre

Everyone here at Stratagia is training hard for either the Dronfield 10K run or 2K fun run, which is held in March! We are hoping to raise at least £500 towards providing disadvantaged Derbyshire children with much needed holidays in Skegness. All money raised will go directly to the Derbyshire Children’s Holiday Centre, a local charity which we have chosen to support this year.

Please help us reach our target by making a donation. Every penny will go directly to the charity who provide 450 holiday places every season. It’s easy to donate on-line at our JustGiving page:

Thank you in advance for your support.

If you have any queries or concerns please do not hesitate to contact Jackie Hitchcott
