Hangover 10K 1/1/15 11:00 am helpers and marshals needed

18/12/2014

Just when you thought it was safe to go out running another event comes along.
Please can we call upon your generosity once again and ask for confirmation of who is willing to help organize and marshal the race on the 1/1/15. I need a number of people to help with jobs around the start/finish and in the village hall, Annette is also looking for 3 or 4 helpers in the kitchen. In addition we need about 20 people to help marshal the course.

As most of you will already know all proceeds from the race go to our charity (Barton Camp). In order to try and increase the donation from the cafe Annette is once again asking for volunteer bakers who may be able to provide Approx. a dozen delicious cakes between you to be sold on the day.

Confirmation back to me at the email below please.

Cheers
Jim
