Join Team Cogwheel for the Histon and Impington Bonfire Burn 2018 on Sunday 4th November.
Cogwheel is taking on this challenge for the second year, and we would love you to join us. We welcome runners of any and all abilities (over age 14). This is an all-terrain 10K route around the villages of Histon and Impington with a real community atmosphere, despite attracting nearly 1000 runners.
Last year we raised over £2000 for Cogwheel and we’d love to top that this year.
The organisers have kindly donated 15 places to Cogwheel, so please register here to donate your registration fee.
Join the team and ask people you to sponsor you here, or set up your own fundraising page click here.
Raise over £120 for a free Cogwheel t-shirt!
Not a runner? Do come and cheer us on and enjoy the Cogwheel cake stall
Cogwheel is very excited to have been chosen as one of three charities for the next round of the Co-op Local Community Fund. This is funded by 1% of all purchases of Coop own brands. You can help by choosing The Cogwheel Trust to receive your 1% charity donation. To do this you must be a member, but it’s easy to join online or in store.

The threatened thunder showers held off for an evening reception in the Master’s Garden at Magdalene College, hosted by Dr Rowan Williams. Guests heard from the Chair of Trustees about the origins of the Trust, and from Dr Rowan Williams about inequality and need in Cambridge, the fastest growing city in the UK for three years in a row and also the most unequal city for 2 years in a row. The Head of Counselling talked about the work of Cogwheel and Neil Prem spoke about his personal journey.

Mental ill health is estimated to cost the national economy 91 million lost working days each year, more than any other illness. Analysts estimate that this absence costs £8.4 billion each year, plus an additional £15.1 billion in reduced productivity. Cogwheel plays a significant role locally in helping people back to work and regain control and self-esteem in their lives.
