Parkrunners help make 1st Gothenburg Fundraising event a success

car boot sale

Early indications suggest over £1000 was raised today at the clubs first fundraising event for the forthcoming Gothenburg Trip.  A massive thank you goes to everyone who attended in particular those who contributed home baking, donations for the stalls and prizes for the attractions.

A special mention and huge thank you goes to the Joggers and Parkrun-ers who really made a difference to the success of the coffee morning by coming en-masse after their Saturday morning session.  Many thanks for the support guys.

The club still has 2 hoodies for auction autographed by Local Olympic Star Mhairi Spence.  The first hoody is a London 2012 Pink age 9-10 and the other is a Blue London 2012 – 12 year old hoody. You can bid for these by emailing your bid to president@invernessharriers.org.uk - bids close at midday on Saturday 18th May

Whilst todays Coffee Morning and Car boot sale was well attended, the club really needs everyone who was unable to make today’s event to make a real effort to support one of the upcoming fundraisers.  Details are below, please make every effort to contribute and participate, the clubs success is reliant on your support.
