We are delighted about our active participation in completing 10K run for the 11th consecutive year on river Thames in Central London. This was the first run after covid-19 pandemic in Central London.
On 25th July 2021, nearly 20 people put on their running shoes to participate in the British 10K in London to help raise money for the Help Smile Trust.
