Donation to Disability Challengers from Alice Holt Races fund

Andrew Ellison presenting cheque from money raised at the 2012 Alice Holt Races to Disability Challengers

Although Farnham Runners do not aim to make a profit from the staging of the Alice Holt races, the popularity of the event resulted in more runners than ever this year which resulted in a surplus. Race director Andrew Ellison was pleased to be able to donate a cheque for £1000 to Lucy Sharma, community fundraising manager for Disability Challengers in Farnham.

In addition to this £1000, the club also donated money to Great Ormond Street Hospital, on behalf of Frensham Heights, and the Scouts, after both groups helped out at the event.
