Nathan’s Half Marathon

On March 17th Nathan Page of Horley, Surrey, will be running in the Mizuno Reading Half Marathon and raising funds for Friends Reaching Out, through sponsorship.

The funds raised will allow us to install a smokeless oven, built from locally available materials, in the kitchen at our senior school students home.
