Shelford Fun Run raises another £5000 for Playscape!
We were delighted that Day Accountants agreed to sponsor chip timing for the Fun Run this year. It was, however, touch and go on the day whether we’d get the chips as they went to Shelford… Nottingham!
Fortunately the roads were clear and the participants very understanding. Phew! After that, everything went beautifully – the weather was glorious, the crowds cheered (and ate cake!) and the first man, woman, boy and girl to cross the line this year were: Jamie Short, who ran an incredible 16:01 and led everyone by 2 minutes, Kelly Crawford ran 20:36, George Christmas sped in at 19: 34 and Isobel Smit ran 26:44. The two adult winners were treated to some nifty aftershock headphones courtesy AngliEar and the children were presented with trophies.
We can only put on this fantastic village event with a lot of help, through sponsorship, donations and volunteering. So a huge thanks to the marvellous Bidwells team who returned as our generous main sponsor: they staffed the water station, helped at the finish line and provided reusable waterbottles for runners. We are also incredibly grateful to Davies Solicitors, David Reed Homes, Day Accountants, AngliEar, Gymbos, Relief Chiropractic, Zara, Scotsdales, Waitrose, The Co Op, the Free Church, Shelford PTA and the WI for all their support too. Thank you all!
Most importantly it raised another £5000 towards an inspiring and inclusive Playscape! To add to this, we were delighted to receive a generous donation of £500 over the summer and £1000 after last month’s article. Thank you so much!
