  1. TRC Charity Donation

After a successful staging of our 3 events over the last year – all sold out – the Committee has decided to increase our donation to our annual Charity St Peter’s Hospice. We will now donate £2,000 and this will be done at the next Run & Rehydrate event on Thursday 11th April

The next Run & Rehydrate will be on 11th of April.  Usual Groups run from Old Down CC at 19.00 then drinks and pizzas after. We will also present our donation of £2,000 to St Peter’s Hospice.

We are also going to do the first “Food Bank Run” on the night of the Run & Rehydrate as a new initiative to help out the Thornbury Food Bank . It is as simple as all TRC Members going to the Run & Rehydrate bring along 2 or 3 items of food eg tins of beans or packet of pasta (non-perishable itema), and we will collect it up and deliver it to the local food bank the following day
