Don’t forget that we’re collecting for our local food banks and are in need of items such as - food, toiletries, and so on. Make some space for the stuff you got for Christmas and help someone in need at the same time!
It was lovely to see so many first-timers and visitors this week and David STEVENS one of our visitors drove from the oxford area, stopped off for parkrun then continued his journey to Aberdeen. I think if we had a medal at parkrun for dedication that he would have won it.
Stephen MORETTI was another visitor who came from Blyth this week and we hope he enjoyed the course. Unfortunately, I did not get his story to add to the report. Hopefully, Stephen will come back to and join us again soon. We also had John Cooke who completed his 50th parkrun but sadly I don't seem to have a picture of him. Let's hope he submits one so we can add it to the report! and finally one other that I knew about was Hannah GRAYSON from Oxford. Thanks to all visitors for choosing Wetherby.
Did you know that you can support your parkrun in a few ways? We think you'll know the obvious ones such as volunteering and taking part but did you know you can also donate to your parkrun? Wetherby needs £300 a year to cover the running cost of the event. We apply for funding to cover this cost but this year we were unsuccessful. At the moment we are looking for other ways and would love to hear your ideas, maybe you work for a company that is willing to help. If you as an individual would like to help, you can make a donation on our website via this link.
Wetherby is not hosting an event on New Year's but many other parkruns will be on. New Year's day also allows you to do 2 parkruns in a day and get double points. If you would like to participate in them you can find out more on the parkrun website please, share your pictures and tag Wetherby if you go. Maybe next year we will be able to put on an event on New Year's Day for you.
