NASS Capital Challenge

The first NASS Capital Challenge took place in London on Sunday 17 May, and was a massive success.
Over 50 people took part in the 6 and 3 mile routes through the capital, and with walkers enjoying glorious sunshine and spectacular views of landmarks Big Ben, St. Paul’s Cathedral and the Houses of Parliament. NASS Chair Raj Mahapatra completed the 6 mile route, and walkers were also joined by trustee Claire Harris.

Thank you to everyone again for your support on what was a fantastic day. Visit our Facebook page for photos.
