Tai Chi Sponsored Walk for Sport Relief 2016

This is the first year I decided to try and do something for Sport Relief.  The idea actually came to me after the last Sport Relief in 2014.  I enlisted the help of another fellow instructor Jane Carlton and spoke to our friends at the Festival Gardens.  I then put the idea to my students. 

There were 15 walkers, 6 marshals and an army of supporters that turned out on March 19th to raise money for Sport Relief.  It was a wonderful morning and below are lots of photos from the event.

To date we have raised £1,043.  Online donations can still be made at http://my.sportrelief.com/sponsor/taichiwalk
