At Burn HQ we’ve been thinking how we can put more back into our community and we’ve come up with a master plan!
We are delighted to announce that the Burn Series has now teamed up with the Wallich charity in Neath & Port Talbot who has three objectives (1) getting people off the streets, (2) keeping people off the streets; (3) and creating opportunities for people.
We want to be able to help with pt (3) of this by gathering items of unwanted sports clothing, kit and equipment from our competitors and re-distribute them to people who could do with them.
To start with we will be focusing on the immediate area of Neath & Port Talbot where recent statistics have shown that 30% of Children live in poverty, compared to the 26% average across Wales.
WE ARE ALL GUILTY OF HOARDING AND SO THIS COULD HELP TO UNCLUTTER YOUR LIFE!
So now the appeal…. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE bring with you to the Burn Series Adventure Race on October 13 at Margam Country Park any items of sports clothing, kit or equipment that you don’t want. However small, it all goes a long way to helping people who don’t have the opportunities that most of us have.
(Further details will be in your competitors information)

We will also be offer some free kayaking on the day to people whom the Wallich charity help because everyone deserves the opportunity to experience sport and we want to make this happen.
If you’d like further details then please contact us on our facebook page where we can openly communicate with the Burn community about developments and plans for the Sport Bank to ensure it becomes the best it can be.
