On the 2nd March, West Berkshire Mencap had 16 runners take part in the Reading Half Marathon in aid of their high quality services for local people with learning disabilities and their families and carers. The runners have raised, all together, over £4400 for this local charity. This amazing amount will make a huge difference to West Berkshire Mencap, who would like to thank these wonderful runners for all their support.
Carrie-Anne Ferrie, Fundraising Manager of West Berkshire Mencap, said “We are very grateful to all of the runners who took part in the Reading Half Marathon on 2nd March in aid of our vital services. The total funds they have raised for us is fantastic and will really help our services for local people with learning disabilities. All of the runners were full of enthusiasm and worked extremely hard to raise much needed funds for our services.”
West Berkshire Mencap has spaces for runners for the Great South Run on 26th October this year and would be grateful to hear from anyone who is interested in running in aid of them.
