How have we helped?
In 2013 21st Century Leaders sponsored Sir Bob Geldof’s managers Mark & Gina Crowe to take part in ‘The Nine Lakes Challenge’ a grueling mountain bike ride and arduous trek over Helvellyn in the Lake District reaching Nine Lakes within Nine Hours, in support of BBC Children in Need.
