Steve Jeffs is arranging to make the £1,000 donations to each of last year's chosen charities, Air Ambulance and Fix the Fells.We are not yet sure if this will involve any presentations.
As agreed at the AGM this year's charities are Air Ambulance and Manna House Kendal.
members really need to start planning some fund raising events that can
take place over the summer months and into the autumn/winter please.
Past events have included orienteering evenings, BBQs/Jacob's Joins but
it would be good if you could come up with some fresh ideas as well
please (and then carry them out with the support of your club mates).
June, Dave and Lorna Hewitt will be drawing up the Wednesday evening
runs list for July/August/September ,so perhaps one or two of you who
are leading runs could come up with a money raising element that could
be included please.
Running Club Raises £1,000 For Fix The FellsFriday, February 10th, 2017 5:50pm
"A group of runners who use the Lake District fells have raised £1,000 for the Fix The Fells project.
The Dallam Running Club has donated the money to the scheme which repairs and maintains upland paths.
Over the last 10 years the Fix the Fells project has brought significant improvements to more than 200 footpaths.
Joanne Backshall, Fix the Fells Programme Manager, said: “We are delighted to receive this substantial donation from Dallam Running Club and we are very grateful to them for their support. It is great that they can utilise the beautiful Lakeland fells on their doorstop for their hobby, whilst recognising the impact they may have on that landscape.“
Paul Sewell, Treasurer of Dallam Running Club, said: “We enjoy running in the Lake District and are keen to give something back to help maintain the paths and fells we use. Our members contribute through an evening run across Morecambe Bay as well as through their entry fees to two other racing events which the Club organises.”
The two races concerned are The 20 Barriers Race in early July based at Carnforth High School, and The Arnside Knott Race at Holgates Caravan Site with the support of The National Trust in mid November."
