Food for Thought...

Sponsored challenges don't all have to be about running marathons or even breaking a sweat at all! In November 2015, WRG volunteer George 'Bungle' Eycott took on the challenge of giving up meat for a whole month - in his own words, the 'V' section of the menu was uncharted territory, so this was quite an undertaking! He kept everyone updated with his efforts via social media, posting pictures of him trying some 'experimental' dishes - his efforts paid of though as he raised over £1,500 for IWA.
