After 600km, submersion in mud, dodging cattle and swimming across beaches, Richard King, The Cotton Textile Company MD, is nearing the end of his 25 run challenge for SNAP Charity.

In January, Mr King set out to raise money for SNAP charity, an essential organisation that supports the parents and carers of kids with mental and physical challenges and disabilities. After learning that 2019 is the charity’s 25th anniversary it was agreed that the challenge would be 25 runs.

Having raised over £1,000 and helping to increase awareness of this amazing team of people who provide vital support and signposting that isn’t offered by the NHS or other health services he is now reaching the end.

On September 26, Mr King will run with supporters and members of the SNAP team between the Cotton Textiles office and SNAP’s headquarters. With the final run taking place through the Essex towns of Hutton, Shenfield, Brentwood and Warley.
