Day 3 is at Timperley is their only North West port of call so lets make it a good one when they play games 13 to 20 of their epic 54 match tour!

They're a determined bunch and have set a target to raise £100,000 from #OpLastPost and are well on the way to doing this even before the first match is played having raised over £34,000 already. if you can't make it down why not make a donation, however small or big via Just Giving Or check out their Online Auction of Promised

Why 457km...? 457 is the number of British military deaths in Afghanistan and in typical Heroes fashion, they will acknowledge each and every life lost to remind people of the sacrifice our service personnel make on our behalf. The teams are putting themselves through this challenge with the sole aim of raising money and awareness in support of Help for Heroes.

So come along and support the day, have some fun in the sun and all for a great cause!
