    The Great Urban Outreach Chicken Run!

    For the last few years, helped by schools, churches and local businesses, Urban Outreach with its volunteers and partners have put together hampers. We distribute them a couple of days before Christmas to families in Bolton who, for various reasons, are having a hard time. These families are identified by our contacts in local support agencies, churches and other organisations.

    We ask schools, churches, local business and other local organisations to pledge and collect Christmas food items to help us make this a reality for hundreds of families in Bolton, giving them a little bit of good news and hope at Christmas.

    The most expensive ingredient in the hamper is the chicken. So…. this year we have a plan to raise £15,000 to pay for the chickens, the trimmings and the fresh vegetables!

    The Plan:

    Three 50+ year olds, on a 50cc scooter for 50 hours attempting to complete the North Coast 500 – dressed as chickens!


    28th September – 30th September 2017

    The Three Men:

    Dave (51 years old) - the Chief Executive of Urban Outreach

    Alan (53 years old) - works for Urban Outreach on the Street Life project

    Rob (50 years old) - works for Urban Outreach on the RUNA (Missing from Home) project

    The North Coast 500:

    A 516-mile scenic route around the north coast of Scotland, starting and ending at Inverness Castle. Named as 'Scotland's Route 66' the official North Coast 500 route begins in Inverness and heads west towards Kyle of Lochalsh, up the scenic west coast to Durness and across the most northerly stretch to John O’Groats and then back down to Inverness again, tackling some of Scotland’s most demanding roads.

    The Scooter:

    A 50cc Pulse Scout (nothing else to say about that!)

      I work for Urban Outreach on the RUNA Project Working with children reported missing from home. I come across many families that are struggling and having a Christmas Dinner is something they cannot face or afford. The hampers they get means they can enjoy a special day together
