The first ever Pilgrims Fun Run in Retford, which took place at the start of this year’s Retford Christmas Market on Sunday 26th November, raised £363.00 for Bassetlaw Hospice.
Bassetlaw Hospice Community Fund Raising Co-ordinator, Debbie Rawlings, accepted cheques from Steve Bennett of TLS (Traffic Labour Supplies), who organised the Pilgrims Fun Run on behalf of Retford Business Forum and Bassetlaw Christian Heritage.
Debbie Rawlings said: “Bassetlaw Hospice is delighted to be the Pilgrims Fun Run’s chosen charity. The Hospice serves all of the people in Bassetlaw and we hope that, as the Pilgrims Fun Run grows in popularity, more people from across the district, as well as within Retford, will take part in making it a truly Bassetlaw-wide event.”
Rick Brand, Vice-Chair of Retford Business Forum, said that working with Bassetlaw Hospice was especially rewarding, and he hopes that the Pilgrims Fun Run raises even more money in the future to support this worthwhile local cause. Retford Business Forum has some exciting plans for the future, and this event is one of the ways it will attract more visitors to the town, and further enhance the experience of its residents.
