Hugh Maltby's 10,000 Mile Challenge 

During the next twelve months Hugh Maltby will be riding 10,000 miles, the equivalent of cycling between Bedford and Adelaide (Australia), through wind, rain, and snow to raise money for Country Days. 

Why are we raising funds?

The hidden impact of the pandemic on the younger generation is becoming all too clear to see.  In 2022, Country Days are hoping to run more courses than ever, giving children, who wouldn’t ordinarily be given the chance, to enjoy the beautiful Bedfordshire countryside.To enhance the children’s experience and enable Country Days to run more courses, we are seeking to raise funds to build two further rain shelters, an additional landing stage and science hut for pond dipping, four more compostable toilets, additional tables and chairs, a portable microscope, more bug hunting materials and field nets for looking at meadow flora and fauna.

Please support us today and make a real difference. Our fundraising target is £5,000 or 50p for every mile!
