Why is it 274 Miles?
It’s 274 miles as £274 represents 10% of the cost of a day’s research, that is also why when you raise £274 or more you’ll also receive a FREE special medal in September to celebrate your great achievement, so go for it!
If you raise £2,740 which represents the cost of a day’s research, you’ll also be able to take a tour of one of Research Centres, talking to our researchers about their vital work you’ve helped to support whilst placing a personalised tile on the Wall of Hope to commemorate your incredible achievement (when restrictions allow).
