Charity race is a big success

NINETY-SEVEN runners completed the first charity Broadway Tower Hill Climb last Wednesday as the perfect weather attracted a large field of all ability runners.

The course was five miles off-road, with around two miles of uphill climbing to the picturesque Broadway Tower and the remaining pretty much all downhill.

The race was well supported by runners from Evesham Vale Running Club, Tewkesbury Athletic Club, Black Pear Joggers and Malvern Joggers and first to the tower and the overall winner was Andrew Kendry of Evesham Vale Running Club, who completed the race in 33 minutes.

First lady was Sheila Barbour, also of Evesham Vale Running Club.




A total of £505 was raised for Mr Thrush and the Worcestershire Breast Care Unit, where Liz Day was treated successfully with a mastectomy and latissimus dorsi reconstruction in 2012.

Mrs Day has now raised £6,000 from numerous fund-raising events throughout the last two years and is now looking forward to handing over the cheque to Mr Thursh in July.
