On Sunday 26th September Malvern Buzzards Running Club organised a fun charity rounders game in aid of St Richards Hospice, the event had over 50 attendees including members, family and friends.
As a club we are always trying to support local businesses and charity’s, we were pleased to be able to continue the support with this event. We decided to raise funds for St Richards Hospice, as they are based in Worcester. Being an independent registered charity, the majority of their income comes from public donations; one off or regular donations, fundraising events and personal challenges. The charity is also close to a lot of members hearts, so it made perfect sense to support them.
We were really pleased to raise £301.50 at the rounders for the charity, further to this the Buzzards running club member, Kev Hart is running the Virtual London Marathon, in aid of St Richards Hospice and has so far raised £1,274.85, such a great achievement!
We were also really pleased to be able to support a local business, Colwall Cricket Club where we held the event, the team at the cricket club were very helpful and made the organisation of the event very easy. They provided the BBQ and a very reasonably priced bar as well as a perfectly manicured green to play the rounders which made for great photos, we would highly recommend this venue for anyone looking to hold a similar event.
