The Ravenwood Children’s Trust has a passion to fund worthwhile causes both at home and abroad, primarily children based projects that can be managed in house by our dedicated team.
Craig the owner of the Ravenwood Group has accomplished some amazing challenges throughout the last 27 years but April 2013 is THE MADDEST CHALLENGE YET! IT HAS TO BE MARATHON DES SABLE
The mighty Marathon Des Sable April 2013 - Known as the toughest foot race on earth this is the ultimate endurance race across the Sahara Desert in Morocco and pushes contestants to their absolute limits. Nicknamed the Sand Marathon it covers 151 miles over just 7 days.
In addition, competitors have to carry everything they will need to survive - it really is survival of the fittest. They run in 51 degree heat in the day and 2 degree chill at night, over dunes, open plane and rocky mountains, so Craig is training hard to get to the standard of fitness he hopes will see him through

on November 25th was a huge success, the evening was a sell out and we raised in excess of £15,000 .We had so many auction and raffle prizes kindly donated we could hold two raffle draws the second draw is on New Years Eve so will know the final total raised after that.
We are always so grateful for the support the trust receives and it was wonderful to receive such compliments on the night, all of the Ravenwood staff work so hard to make the evening one to remember so watch out for next years date..... Link to Ravenwood Charity Ball Pictures 2012
