We are also hosting a Christmas raffle this year and will be selling tickets at both the Christmas Meal and our festive running evening on the Thursday 13th December (information below). The raffle and the festive running evening will be to raise money for the Royal Brompton & Harefield Trust Charity. This is a charity that has been chosen by Sarah Richards in memory of her Son Max who sadly died earlier this year. We would like to raise as much money as possible for this fantastic cause and to let Sarah, her husband Jamie and other Son, Reggie know how much we have thought about them during this incredibly difficult time.
Sarah said about the charity 'The Royal Brompton have really helped us with screening of Reggie and also in finding out the true cause of Max’s death. Without them we would still not really know what happened. A gene was responsible and Jamie & I were both carriers. With their ground breaking research we would not know this. They also do amazing work in treating people with heart & lung problems.'
Please join in showing your support and giving generously. If anyone is able to donate a raffle prize, we would be very grateful.
So, on to the festive running evening. On Thursday 14th December, we will be inviting all members to run in festive wear and contribute £3 each on the evening for our chosen charity. We will then be holding a 'Christmas jumper' drinking session in the bar. Everyone is welcome. We will be drawing the raffle on this evening.
