Basingstoke Town FC Women are running a total of 362 miles this month (+4 mile swim) to raise money for Basingstoke NeighbourCare. The mileage is a total of all our away game destinations from our beloved home ground, Winklebury Football Complex.
Our runners will total the amount of miles they do each week, if our calculations are correct, averaging 13 miles per day (total) we should reach our target! Until it comes to the 4 mile swim… then the squad have another challenge on their hands!
More about the Charity & how to donate
We are delighted to take this opportunity to fundraise for Basingstoke NeighbourCare. Formed as a registered charity in 1997, they provide an accompanied transport service to those in genuine need in our community and, in 2010, a befriending facility was formally established. The team of dedicated volunteers have also played a vital part in transporting community members to and from hospital appointments and more recently, to COVID vaccination centres. Their befriending service has also played a huge part in connecting to those who need it most during these challenging times.
We will be sharing more about the Charity over the next couple of weeks so please keep an eye on our social media sites for more information.
