2018 Check Presentation Ceremony

Grantchester Charity Runs 2018 Check Presentation Ceremony, 1/11/18

On a somewhat grey and damp November morning two of the GCR organising team met with Maggie’s and the Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust to hand over cheques following the record setting 2018 Grantchester Charity Runs. 2018 saw two new course records, a record number of entrants and record donations to our designated charities; next year is going to be a challenge!

The Grantchester Charity Runs media partner was present to record the scene and a nice mention appeared in last Wednesday’s edition. Keith Hempel, the Independent photographer turns out to have been a schoolmate of Professor Chris Watson who is leading the Liver Perfusion Machine program at Addenbrooke’s which our contribution to ACT will support. ‘Tis a small world!

Andrea Chupacova from accepted our contribution to Maggie’s which will go towards the family, friends and patient support that Maggie’s provide at Addenbrooke’s.

2019 will see the 10th Grantchester Charity Runs and they will take place on Sunday, September 29th on the same much acclaimed multi-terrain course in Grantchester, Cambridge. Registration will open in the New Year.
