Between the 24th and the 29th of June, Leathwaite joined forces with Pelham Street to see who can travel the furthest distance in 5 days to raise money for the charity Hope and Homes.  

A huge thank you to all the runners, cyclists, walkers and kayakers who took part. Together the two teams ran a staggering 997km, cycled 3,134km and covered 550km in their ‘Distance with Distinction’ category, bringing the total distance travelled to 4,533km — the equivalent from London to the Ukraine and back again, or coast to coast in the USA!

As a result, the total on Just Giving stands at a whopping £2,715 so far, helping Hope and Homes for Children change the lives of vulnerable children and families around the world.
