Michelle Mitchell from First Step said: “It was a wonderful atmosphere, really well organised and Raphel Park was an excellent venue.

“We are so grateful to Grove and Dean for their commitment to First Step, the many corporate and local business supporters and, of course, all the volunteers, runners, walkers and dogs!

“First Step relies on the generosity of our community and, on behalf of everyone here at the charity, we extend our sincere thanks.”
