Robin Hood Challenges:

Fundraising work through sponsorship-

As well as the Funding options listed on the Funding the Project Page, The Sherwood Forest Archaeology Project raises money through direct fundraising- known as “Robin Hood Challenges” to enable people from many backgrounds, and needs to be involved in Archaeology in the Landscape of legends…

Robin Hood Challenge 1:

Andy Gaunt raises £500 in a “Robin Hood Challenge” half marathon run!

In September 2016 Mercian Director Andy Gaunt undertook the first Robin Hood Challenge when he ran the Robin Hood Half Marathon to raise money to engage young people with autism in archaeology in Sherwood Forest.

The run collected sponsorship amounting to £500.

This money will be used in conjunction with local organisation “Spectrum Wasp” Parental Support for Autism, Asperger's and ADHD - a support group for parents with children on the autistic spectrum. Based at Ransom Hall at Ransom Wood Business Park, in Sherwood Forest.
