What a load of santas!

Thank you all - all the runners, supporters, Saltram Park and Plymouth Coasters Running Club.

Everybody seemed to enjoy the run - great weather, great course and great fun!

The running club presented us with a cheque for....£1267-25. Staggering. Thank you all!
We also managed to collect another £45-35 on the day, bringing the total to £1312-60.

This takes us a step closer to meeting the requirements to become registered with the Charities Commission. This will enable us to get a Gift Aid number, and set up on-line accounts through organisations such as Justgiving. We also think we are now in a position where we can start to use the funds to help local children with complex needs. Keep an eye out in the local press and by following us on this blog.

The next twelve months look very encouraging.

Good luck to the Plymouth Coasters for the future success of this event, and for their chosen charity for 2010.

We are always looking for ideas on future fundraising events, more fundraisers, volunteers and trustees. If anyone is interested, or would like to know more, please e-mail us at admin@pl-ease.org.uk

Many thanks - and Happy Christmas - to you all!

Santa at the ready!

All ready for the Santa run at Saltram Park tomorrow. Very many thanks to whoever managed to arrange for a decent weather forecast!

Run starts at 11:00. 300 santas will be running through the park - getting a bit of exercise before helping to load the presents in two weeks time.

The run has been organised by Plymouth Coasters Running Club, and they have chosen PL-ease as their charity for 2009.

See http://www.plymouthcoasters.co.uk for more details of the club.

Many thanks
