25th Run raises record funds

Congratulations to all of you who helped us break all records again. It seems a long time now since that day in May when the temperatures soared to over 80 degrees -the hottest day of the year!

On September 25th the Lions held a special presentation evening at the Greswolde Hotel when the monies generated from this years event were donated to the nominated charities.

In all £50,068 was raised by the Fun Run alone. When added to £10,679 raised at our Festive Walk and through our Easter Eggs raffles we were able to donate ?41,960 to the 3 nominated charities (£14,100 to Acorns; £14,760 to Jennifer Trust & £13,100 to Meningitis Trust) and retain ?18,787 for local causes. (These figures exclude  monies given to us to forward direct to charities or any money you may have donated directly to charity)

In addition we announced that our July Summer Stroll has already raised £1,250 and Bikeathon £7,500.

We have also announced that next years nominated charities will be Macmillan Cancer Support, Whizz-Kidz, Camapign SightFirst 2 as well as retaining 30% for local causes.

If you know of a local cause you think we should support we would like to hear from you at info@KnowleFunRun.org.uk.
