The Style Acre 100K Challenge – 11th -13th October
Eight people with learning disabilities and support staff undertook a fundraising 100K challenge around south Oxfordshire over three days.
The team, who are supported by Style Acre, completed a return cycle ride from Blewbury to Oxford, canoe route from Oxford to Abingdon and a walk from Abingdon to Didcot.
Rachel Knapp, who is taking part in the 100k says: ‘I’ve never done a big challenge before and I’m doing this to make myself step outside my comfort zone. I’m raising money for Style Acre where I have been coming for 6 years. Style Acre has helped me a lot, got me two jobs. It’s given me lots of confidence. I will feel happy to finish!’
The Falcon Canoe Club in Oxford have provided canoes and helped the challengers with their training and Falcon member Keith Long has volunteered to collect the canoes from Abingdon at the end of Day 2.
