Running Somewhere Else supports charities; feel free to make a donation yourself and make a difference! We raise funds for charities through social events, our club race – the Fairford 10k – and through donations when legitimately having someone else’s race number.
Current charity – Cotswold Counselling
Our charity for 2019-20 is Cotswold Counselling.
The charity is run by unpaid volunteers who offer a wide range of emotional support from their centres in Cirencester, Moreton-in-Marsh and Chipping Campden, and a limited service at home for those who are housebound.
Our biggest fundraising year to date, we raised £2,450 for Cirencester Signpost, again presenting the cheque to the charity at a club ‘away day’ in South Cerney. Read more about the donation in this Wilts and Gloucestershire Standard article.
This time we supported The Churn Project and were extremely proud to present a cheque for £2,400 to CEO Fran Embleton-Smith at a special ‘away day’ running evening.
CHYP (Cirencester Housing for Young People) was our chosen charity – we raised £1,700 through various events throughout the year.
We donated £1,400 to Winston’s Wish.
Generous cheques were given to The Timmy Mason Trust and Cirencester Open Air pool.
