After the event

Other than celebrating your achievement, it’s now simply about collecting your sponsorship money pledged on your paper sponsorship forms and getting it to your Team Captain as soon as possible. You can still ask for sponsorship through Virgin Giving as well.

It’s your Team Captain’s responsibility to coordinate the return of all the team’s sponsorship forms and the money. They’ve been asked to do this by 31st July 2017.
