EVENT CANCELLED - COVID19

Regretfully we have taken the difficult decision to cancel this years' event.

 

This is not a decision we have taken lightly as it will have a significant impact on our fund-raising for 2020 but as I am sure you will appreciate it is very difficult to plan anything with any certainty in the current climate whilst maintaining the necessary levels of health & safety for all those involved. 

We will be in touch with everyone who has already entered over the next few days to discuss the options available.  Thank you for your patience, understanding and continued support of our charity.

We hope to see you at our 40th event on Saturday 26th June next year.  Please save the date!!

In the meantime, we hope you all keep well and stay safe.
