This event will be raising money for the Smile for Joel charity.
After losing three family members (Joel, Pat and Ade) in June 2015 during the Tunisian terror attacks, Suzi and Owen Richards wanted to make a difference in their name for others who have experienced losing someone they love in such a heart-breaking way.
SmileForJoel was set up as a fund raising charity to support and help shattered/ broken families who are victims of traumatic bereavement through homicide. They give direct to families the support that they desperately need. This support is very diverse, from time out for family breaks, special counselling, help with purchases of gifts or that special gift to a family to show them someone does care.
Thanks to all teams and volunteers taking part in the event
