Run for the Parks

141012 072311Team Squirrel is the nutty scurry of runners who take on the challenge of conkerin’ the Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon, while raising vital funds for the Royal Parks Foundation.

Massive congratulations to Team Squirrel 2015 who scampered their way to success in the Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon on Sunday 11 October 2015.

Every penny they raise will help us to keep the doors of our education centre in Hyde Park open. Last year alone we had 5,123 school students visit us; who came from 89 different schools, and half of those were Special Education Needs schools.
