Registrations for the Sawston Fun Run & Walk are forecasted to reach 1,000 at this weekend’s South Cambridgeshire’s community flagship event.

The organisers, the Rotary Club of Cambridge Sawston, aim to raise over £15,000 to add to the £440,000 that this popular local event has already donated to local good causes since 1986.

The major beneficiary will be the YMCA Trinity Group initiatives to provide mental health support to children in local primary schools and their work with vulnerable homeless individuals in this area, by funding additional support services in their Cambridge accommodation.

A second major beneficiary is Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust with the purchase of a CO2 ventilator module for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the Rosie.

Others to benefit are: South Cambs Riding for Disabled, Duxford Preschool, Chesterford Preschool, the DX Club at Duxford Primary School, Sawston Air Cadets, Sawston Cricket Club, Linton Infants School PTFA, Whittlesford & Duxford Scouts, Sawston Boys Brigade, Sawston & District Toy Library, Sawston Girls Brigade, Sawston Sing to Remember, Friends of Sawston Library and seven local primary schools.

Registration can be done on the day at Sawston Village College from 9.00am for both the 10.30am main race [7.4K] and the short course [4K] for school years 1-6.

Details are available at www.sawstonfunrun.co.uk.

Fees are £7.00 for school years 1-11 and £14.00 for adults.
