A total of 20 lucky participants will brave the outdoors undertaking a series of challenges to test their individual and team mental resilience and their ability to adapt in a remote and austere environment.  Activities will include individual, pair and team challenges and competitions throughout the 48 hour period.  The participants will be split into two camps: Red and Blue.

All contestants must approach this as a digital detox so no watches, no smoking allowed and no comfort items are allowed unless essential for health reasons. Mobile phones will only be allowed for event social media purposes at designated times. Toilets will be slit trenches away from any sleeping and eating areas which will also have privacy covering. On site medical support will be provided.

A party of 41 volunteer trekkers have safely achieved their objective of climbing to the Nepal Everest Base Camp and have raised an amazing £200k for the Steve Prescott Foundation (SPF) in the process.

Padgate Tennis and Bowling Club in Warrington presented a cheque for a magnificent £1610 to Steve Prescott Foundation secretary Alex Chicken at their annual awards night at the Grange Social club last Saturday.

The tennis club held a 12 hour tennis-a-thon in April this year with a number of other activities which ran during the course of the day including free tennis coaching, round robin competitions, a prize raffle and a BBQ. The club also auctioned a very desirable and unique piece of tennis memorabilia for the SPF. In preparation for the event, organiser Andy Hawley contacted 2014 Strictly Come Dancing star Judy Murray to request her support for the event. Judy very generously sent a tennis shirt and tennis ball both signed by her son former Wimbledon champion Andy Murray. She also sent a personal note saying, ‘Signed shirt from Andy for your Steve Prescott fundraiser. Good luck. Judy x’

Widnes Vikings fan Leam Fox went the extra mile in organising a match between Widnes All Stars and Halton Simms Cross ARLFC  at Birchfield Sport and Social Club, Widnes on Sunday 15th November in aid of the Steve Prescott Foundation and the Widnes Fellowship Centre. This was followed by an evening of entertainment.

Leam had organised the day as if it was a Wembley Cup final with pre match and half time entertainment, mascots and a match MC. Players were presented to guests from the SPF and the Widnes Fellowship Centre before the game.  The game was played in great spirit and there were several 'splash tries' in the wet conditions. Leam even managed a break away try. No one knows what the final score was!

Even though Steve Prescott is no longer with us, Steve has continued to inspire. Under the guidance of his wife Linzi the Steve Prescott Foundation has continued to grow and we are delighted to announce that 2015 has seen the SPF surpass its previous record donation of £180,000 to its nominated charities. Not only has the SPF beaten that target, it has smashed it.

Representatives of the SPF chosen charities Steve Ball of the RFL Benevolent Fund, Mark Saunders from The Christie & Anil Vaidya Steve’s transplant surgeon were each presented with a donation of £80,000 to their charity, a magnificent £240,000 in total at the Solar King Pride of St Helens Awards at Langtree Park on Friday 13th November. A grand total of £940,000 has been donated to causes since Steve started the Foundation in 2007.

The SPF is also delighted to announce the creation of the SPF Special Causes Fund. This will allow those hospitals, researchers and surgeons who deal in Psuedomyxoma related conditions and multi visceral transplantation to apply for grants to the Trustees of the SPF who will ensure sure that the money will have a direct and significant effect on people’s lives.

2016 will be the Million Pound Year for the SPF with several events already planned,  the highlight being a expedition to Everest Base Camp in October.

Open from Saturday 29th November - Monday 22nd December
