Yes, it really is nearly 2018 and time to gird up your metaphorical loins for another Race. The 2017 Race was really successful, with 17 teams taking part, and a total of £2,525,35 given in donations. Ted Merrikin, our Treasurer, was very diligent in hunting down Gift Aid, so the final total raised for conservation purposes was £3,009.34.
Christmas is a good time to organise your teams and sponsorship and plan the route for your Race – which must be carried out in the first two weeks of January, within Sussex. If you are unable to participate yourself, you may wish to consider supporting one of the participating teams.
Further details are in the newsletter which should arrive soon, and Race packs are available from Val Bentley on firstname.lastname@example.org or ring 01273 494723
