President’s Charity Run

Family Fun Run for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research

 Brother Richard’s Charity is Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research, in memory of the late Gerard Glancy.

 A Family Fun Run is planned for Saturday 23rd March at Lloyd’s Park, starting at 2pm. It is open to all the family. The distance is 7km with each lap of the park being about 1.6km and although it is called a Fun Run, you have the option to either run or  walk all or just part of the course.

 Of course, it is hoped you will secure sponsorship for your efforts in aid of Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research.

 The easiest way to handle sponsorship is via ‘Justgiving’. Their website is and click ‘Make Your Page’. Just make sure you choose Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research as your chosen charity.

 If you are not happy to set up your ‘Justgiving’ website, the Sponsorship Form can be downloaded from ourCroydon Circlewebsite.

 Mike McFarlane needs to know who will be running so that he can advise Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research. They will send out fundraising packs and T-Shirts to all entrants.

 If you don’t feel happy with running or walking on the day, why not help a runner with sponsorship.

 Mike McFarlane and Ken Lee are organising some training sessions to help us all get fit for the run. These dates will be sent by e.mail to all brothers.
