An online Donation from the event of £173, plus gift aided, has also been added. Superb bucket collection action!
Amazing, we had 52 runners, it poured with rain but no one dropped out. We had lots of spectators including Board Directors. Although we did not push the collection we still go around £150.
James Paton gave the speech, sweatshop gave us 50 x £5 vouchers and free pair running trainers (via James the Manager of Sweatshop). We also provided refreshments courtesy of our onsite Restaurant caterer. Plus they gave us 25% food discount vouchers.
We had 20 or so thank you emails, 6 people join our running club so far since the event and a few say they will be taking part next month.
I really can say that it was truly amazing and it just goes to show how popular Ged was one lady in particular Lisa (From ICT) was so excited to be part that even though she knew she could only plod round still took part despite the heavy rain.
Here's some photos.
