Kris told us...

"Having worked in The Ridings for quite some time now, I have been involved in the wonderful event that is the ‘Cuppa Club’.  Having seen the positive impact it has had on the community around Wakefield and how much it has grown.  I would be honoured to nominate Age UK Wakefield District as my chosen charity for the event. Hoping to raise funds to go towards this great cause".

Kris has set up a page on BT mydonate for people to sponsor his excellent efforts.

We would like to thank Kris very much for this donation to support older people in the Wakefield District.

We will, of course, update you on Kris's progress and hopefully successful win with minimum injury.
