Who are we supporting
CLASH 2012 started as a user-led, self-help group in 2006 to address the unmet health and social needs of people with arthritis and other musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. CLASH is based at Dock and became a charity in 2013. The charity is committed to providing a range of health, well-being and digital services to improve MSK patients’ quality of life.
Coping with Cancer
Coping With Cancer continues to grow in strength year on year. The services now offered are varied and extensive; from complimentary therapies, counselling support and support groups to befriending, meditation, a solicitors surgery and other recreational therapies.
A group of friends are pulling together to complete a series of challenges and events to hopefully raise awareness and lots of money for two Leicester based charities. The first campaign included 24 hours in the gym, 13 miles up and over muddy obstacles, 10k run through Cannock Chase, 100 miles on a bike and 26 miles at the London Marathon – not everyone’s idea of fun!
From June 2017 onwards, a team of local, likeminded and incredibly active people will be participating in 7 different events to raise as much as possible for two different charities all based in or around Leicester. And you can take part too – whether you’re a regular at the gym, a local business or just someone willing to help their local community, there’s something for you.
We are purchasing equipment for these charities and organisations. They vary from making moving and exercising in a hydro pool comfortable for people with MSK, to use of Helen Webb House to take part in complimentary therapies for people suffering cancer.

As 2016 comes to a close, we decided to get a view form Jit Chauhan, the brains behind 7 Events. With 6 events successfully completed, we asked him: 1) How would you describe 2016? Heart-warming, inspirational and challenging! 2) Tell us the most important thing from every month this year: January 7 Events launches and[…]
Jit shares his thoughts on the 100 mile bike ride he completed for 7Events “I have to start by saying what a fantastically organised event this was. A huge thanks goes out to those involved in the organisation, it went really well. So, I bet you’re all wondering why I’d sign up for this…Well, I[…]
