Chris is going the extra mile for Shivia…literally


Five years ago our trustee and CFO, Chris Langridge, had a very good reason for setting himself a tough mental and physical challenge. Chris had been diagnosed with cancer and needed to get fit and lose some weight before undergoing surgery.  So he entered the Blenheim Triathlon.

Not only did Chris successfully complete the course but he also won a trophy for raising the most funds for charity out of all the competitors.  We are happy to say that Chris’s surgery was also a success.

Five years on and Chris is up for the challenge again and this time is raising funds for Shivia.  The event is on 2nd June and Chris has set up a fundraising page on JustGiving for anyone how would like to support him.  He’s looking to beat both his PBs

1) time to complete the course and

2) amount of funds raised.

Go Chris!!

  • Farming is my only source of income... I registered with Shivia to learn how to reduce my farming expenses and produce better quality outputs. I am definitely seeing good results compared to previous years and have learned how to make bio-pesticides.
