St Nics Team Reading Half-Marathon Sponsorship

Peter Kemm, Neil Warwick, Richard Cox, John and Michael Louth, and Andy Barlow are taking on the challenge of running the Reading Half-Marathon on Sunday 19th March. Despite their various states of fitness, they all share the same desire to raise funds for the exciting new Earley St Nicolas Centre – a flexible, open and welcoming space for our community. We plan to enlarge and refurbish our hall, and create a link to the church. Our aim is to help raise £400,000 to meet our £1.4million target. To donate please click here and if you can support the St Nics Team on the day, they would really appreciate your cheering and applause. Thank you
