Phoenix House Visit

Phoenix House, Catterick

Darran Bilton, race director of the Dalby Dash 10k trail run in Dalby Forest, was invited along with members of the Pickering Rotary Club (who help marshal the race) to the Phoenix House Rehabilitation Centre at Catterick near Richmond. 

The centre is funded by Help for Heroes and provides help to service men and women who have suffered mental and physical injuries.

Area Fundraising manager Rob Colgrove was keen to show the team how cash raised from events such the Dalby Dash, which has raised almost £20k for the charity, is spent. Rob said "alongside psychological wellbeing, we support our heroes through a state of the art gym, art class and wood workshop, where we are building a Viking Longboat which lead the display at next year's Viking festival in York! All this is possible due to events like the Dalby Dash."

Entry details for this year's race which is on Remembrance Sunday 10th November, can be found at www.dalbydash.com
