Uckfield Runners supplied all the volunteers at the Uckfield Parkrun on Saturday 23rd November and at the end presented a large £1000 cheque to The Children’s Respite Trust.
The cheque was presented to Gavin Fisher CEO of the The Children’s Respite Trust by Peter Wilkes Chairman of Uckfield Runners at the Uckfield Rugby Club at the end of Saurdays Park Run
Running Club members were out in force on the day helping to marshall the event and also raising awareness of the club Uckfield Runners was started in October 1991 with just half a dozen runners, since then the club has grown considerably to 100 paid up members. The membership fees are just £20.00 per year per person plus each time they run on any club morning or evening they pay £1.00. The club meets Monday morning at 9.30am term time only, Tuesday evening at 7pm and Thursday evening at 7.30pm all at Freedom Leisure Centre, Uckfield.
Over the course of the year those £1.00 coins add up and sometimes they have excess funds. From this money they like to give to a local worthy cause. Both WRAS, Whitesmith in 2017 and St Wilfrids Hospice, Eastbourne in 2018 have benefited from donations from Uckfield runners
