I just wanted to say a big thankyou to all those running club members who kindly donated unwanted/surplus running T shirts for me to take on my recent charity related trip to Uganda. As you can see from the photos attached the recipients were delighted with their new tshirts and we left many to be distributed amongst those who barely had one set of clothing.
Thanks too to all the ladies who donated surplus bras – we collected between 2-3000 in two weeks of receiving the request from a Ugandan lady. I had several parcels per day arriving from friends around the country and collected over 300 personally from friends. there is a photo attached of one happy lady receiving one of the bras!!
I have also attached details of another forthcoming fundraising event – similar to one held in April. We have had requests to have a similar evening as it was such a success last time. It would be great to see as many of you there as possible. If you need tickets please let me know by email (or text on 07771 514740) as we need to know numbers for catering purpose at least a week beforehand. Jackie Keasley and Liz Dobson came last time – so ask them for their opininons!!
Ps if any of you have T shirts and /or bras wich didn’t get to me before my trip it’s not to late to give them to me as the charity are hoping to send some extra items out in a container in the near future.
