Fundraising like a Warrior!

We’d like to say an enormous thank you and well done to Charles Codrington for running the Hertfordshire Warrior Adrenaline Race to raise funds for the SMART Prebend Centre.

Charles, who is the president of the Rotary Club of Bedford, finished the gruesome 5 kilometre obstacle course in just 1 hour, 14 minutes and 59 seconds and was the first home in his race – impressive indeed! What’s even more impressive is by doing so he has raised a staggering £2288.56 for the centre!

Fundraising is a crucial part of keeping the SMART Prebend Centre open. Without support from people like Charles we would be unable to help the homeless, vulnerably housed & socially isolated in Bedford.

So thanks once again to Charles for enduring the muddy, wet and cold obstacles in order to generate awareness and much needed funds for the centre. Thanks also to everyone who donated, we very much appreciate it.

Could you become a fundraiser for the SMART Prebend Centre?
