So who took part...

Chris Godber from the Fundraising Team said:
It has been wonderful to see the creative ways the teams have taken their £100 seed fund and grown it into vital funds for Myton! Well done to everyone involved, and we are so pleased the majority of your activities could take place before the Coronavirus pandemic impacted us all. The money you raised is even more important now that many fundraising events have been cancelled or postponed because of the pandemic.
