The aim of the run was to bring SLSW carers and people who use our services at events across the two counties and to celebrate Shared Lives Week.

Within minutes  everyone got on their trainers/walking boots and covered the miles on his behalf.

Dominic was back for the final day and in total ran 132.5 miles over the five days, with the staff team making it up to the 200 mile mark.

They took in Barnstaple, Crediton, Dawlish, Newton Abbot, Paignton, Plymouth, St Austell, Scorrier and Penzance along the way.

Shared Lives schemes across the country all celebrated the great work they are doing by hosting coffee mornings, meeting MPs and hosting stands to raise awareness of their organisation. It’s an annual event which usually takes place in June.
