See what the £280 the Fox family raised could do

Three generations of the Fox family took part in the Mile event at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in 2014, raising a brilliant £280.

That’s enough to pay for four disadvantaged young people in the UK to go on a week’s vocational training to help them learn new skills and improve their chances of finding work.
