THANK YOU to everyone who braved the heat and joined us for our Run to the World Cup event! It was an amazing community effort by all and a fantastic afternoon of fun and games. We ran further than last year despite the mercury-breaking temperatures - didn't quite make it to Russia, but we got as far as Germany (or Hamburg to be precise) and we raised over £2000 with more sponsorship money on the way bringing our grand total to £50,000. WOW!
For all who raised £50 or more in sponsorship, we will draw the winner for the Amazon voucher on Sunday, July 15th, so please get your sponsorship money in by then. If you clocked in the laps and didn't pick up a certificate, just let us know and we will get one to you.
It was a scorcher of a day, so we know that running and fundraising in the blazing sun was no easy feat! Extra thanks to all the volunteers who helped out especially 1st Bishopthorpe Scouts, Archbishop of York's Junior School, Friends of Bishopthorpe Junior School, Cots to Tots, York Bubble Football, The Taylor & Curtis family, Ian Tyssen and all who attended the event. We could not have done it without you!
Stay tuned for our next event, Curry Night, coming this September. This is a 'hot' ticket (in cooler climates we hope!), so watch this space and information in our next newsletter. THANKS AGAIN!
