Jo Plumbley is cycling from London to Edinburgh AND BACK in one go!

On July 30th I will be attempting to cycle 900 miles from London to Edinburgh and back in aid of Great Western Air ambulance, the Thornbury Running Club Charity for this year.

I have just over 100 hours to complete the challenge so will need to average over 200 miles a day for 4 days.

If I make it I promise to try and return with some celebratory shortbread or similar Scottish fare

Any contributions would be very gratefully accepted. Just e mail me, sign up on the sponsorship form that will be at club night on Thursday, throw some change in the air ambulance collection tin that will also be there or use my Just Giving page where you can donate directly to the charity.

Thank you so much for your support.

TRC Summer Party – Sat 8th July

Karen Carr needs to know by today Friday 2nd June 19.00 if you intend to go to the Summer Party. Please reply to Karen with answers to 2 questions… [email protected]

A)  If you would like to come to the party and how many partners/children you will be bringing

B)  What would be your preferred food option – no guarantees because we will go with the most popular choice

The details are yet to be finalised and it will only go ahead if there is enough interest within the club.  At this stage I just need to know how many people would like to come.  As of Thursday’s Club Night we don’t have enough people to make it happen.

The party will be on Saturday 8th July from around 6.30pm in the garden of Rob and Cathy Watkins in Rockhampton. 

We have two options for food:

Jamaican Jerk Chicken or vegan falafel option, rice and peas, caribbean salad

or

Pizza and salad

(Both supplied by Bristol based restaurant and catering companies)

Entertainment will be from Paul da Vinci (formerly of the Rubettes).  If you don’t remember them – ask you mum or dad!!!  He’s performed for us before and is guaranteed to get you moving!

Drinks will be supplied by you!

The cost will be no more than £10 per head.   Club members, partners and children are all invited.

Please respond to Karen today if you intend to go.
