Welcome to the donation page for Team Steam: extreme ironing for St Michael's Hospice

On 25th March 2012 a team of extreme ironists will iron around the course of the Hastings Half Marathon. It is the first time that extreme ironing will be carried out on a Half Marathon course using hot irons. 

They will stop off at various points of the 13.1 mile course to iron a few garments, pressing the case to support St Michael's Hospice which relies on donations to cover 2/3 of its £5 million operating costs. 

Team Steam will be running in memory of extreme ironing founder Steam's mother, Brenda Szomszor, who died of cancer in May 2011 while in the care of St Michael's Hospice. 

Keep up to date with the team's training regime on the Team Steam website - teamsteam.org
