Making A Difference
The money raised through Viking Challenge is split between Redmile CofE School and one other nominated charity.
Redmile School sits unassuming in the small village of Redmile, located in the Vale of Belvoir, and in the shadow of Belvoir Castle (the seat of the Duke of Rutland). With only 60 pupils, organising and hosting such a successful event like the Viking Challenge is no small feat and something that the staff, children and parents are immensely proud of. The Viking Challenge makes a big impact and has raised thousands of pounds for the school and other charities.
Reach - Supporting people with learning disabilities in Nottinghamshire
We run courses, social activities and projects to help people get the life they want in their own community.
We have four bases – Reach Southwell, Reach Newark, Reach Mansfield, and Flower Pod from which we run weekly activities ranging from Art, Cooking, Drama, Men’s groups, Women’s groups and lots more. We can also offer short courses in other settings across Nottinghamshire as well as annual holidays and trips.
Our care support company – Reach Learning Disability Care CIC (Reach Care) provides domiciliary care to adults with learning disabilities on a one-to-one basis.
The money raised from the Viking Challenge will help enable us to continue our work throughout Nottinghamshire.
