The Mason Mile, which focuses on bringing families and individuals together to achieve a mile, whether that’s through a run, walk or jog is hosting a special event in Maidstone on the 16th November to raise money for Children in Need.

The Mason Mile are encouraging the community to come together and support this fun initiative, to raise as much money as possible for Children in Need. Golding Vision, the community arm of Golding Homes, and Wellbeing People will be supporting the event and providing fun juice making activities for everyone involved.

We want to get schools, businesses, individuals and in fact everyone to come along and run. For every kid under 13, who walk, jog or run a mile, The Mason Mile Foundation will donate £1 or £2 to Children in Need (depending on how quickly they get around) and collections of donations will be taken from anyone else completing a mile.
