The money you raise will help people living every day in the deadly shadow of landmines and other remnants of conflict. So, as you enjoy sailing down the hills, taking in the landscape, you can also relish the feeling of helping thousands of people far worse off than you all over the world.”EndsNotes to editorsAn entry fee of £18 for adults and £10 for children applies, with reductions for groups. MAG asks that participants raise a minimum of £100 sponsorship.For more information about MAG, this event or to request an interview please contact Kate Wiggans, Media & PR Officer on 0161 238 5445 / 07979 343 969 or at [email protected] Advertisement About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
