Rachel Goodfellow completes her 'Epic Run' for the Hidden Needs Trust

Jul 6, 2016

Somerset Community Foundation fund holder Rachel Goodfellow completed her Epic Run on Tuesday 5th of July, having completed a staggering 733 miles in 26 days!

Rachel undertook the challenge to raise money for the Hidden Needs Trust, which supports Opportunity Groups in Somerset and Dorset. These groups support pre-school children with special needs and their families in a safe and stimulating environment, but need £30,000 per year each to operate. Rachel, recognising the Opportunity Groups' vital work, set up the Hidden Needs Trust as a fund with Somerset Community Foundation in 2015.

Rachel's amazing run has taken her all over Somerset and Dorset and she is now putting out a call for people to donate to the Hidden Needs Trust in recognition of her many hours of toil. If you would like to donate and support Rachel's hard work over the past month, please click here

Finally, all the staff at Somerset Community Foundation pass on their congratulations to Rachel for completing such an enormous challenge! Even in a relay run we aren't sure we could complete one marathon between us...
