Hell & Back for Neil

A big congratulations to all those that took part in Hell and Back 31st January 2016 for Neil. He was overwhelmed by the efforts and generosity on behalf of Team Neil. A big thank you also for all the support from the parents and the wider community in the 10k Hell & Back challenge. 

“The team braved the ice cold rivers, got shot at with pellet guns, climbed over a ten foot wall, ran through electric shocks (twice!), crawled through trenches, squeezed through tyres, sludged through swamps and carried logs up and down a mountain for good measure! It was a bit of a mad day but we're all very proud to have done it and hold a great sense of achievement! 

So we all made it back alive but carrying minor knocks here and there!”
