2021 GWC VIRTUAL ADVENTURES

The response to our  'virtual GWC' has far exceeded our expectation. Over 150 people have taken part from all over the world including Australia and USA - many of whom have taken on longer challenges than they would normally by spreading it over a number of days.  A fantastic achievement by everyone involved and we are extremely grateful for your support.  

Here are some of their stories :
