Health and Wellbeing Event: Brereton Can

Brereton Million are launching a Health & Wellbeing Campaign!

After spending a lot of volunteer hours, resources and money on Ravenhill Park we have successfully fitted a brand new Play park.

We are about to complete refurbishing the running track, adding an outdoor gym and a nature walk. Adding on to this we were looking for ways to group this together, which would fit with our other work and our priorities.
