Harriers running club makes donation to town's BAY Centre
Harriers Running Club has this week made a donation towards the
cost of much-needed repairs at the Burnham Area Youth Centre.
the recent closure of King Alfred Sports Centre, the BAY Centre
kindly allowed the members of Burnham Harriers to use their premises
as a base for their weekly training runs. Therefore, to thank
the centre for its support, the members decided to make a donation.
seen a recent report on Burnham-On-Sea.com about the
centre's leaking roof windows, we heard there was a need for
funds and decided to make a donation of £500," said
the club's Brian Beale.
"This money has been accumulated by the hard work and dedication
over many years of club members on the promotion of the Burnham
Half Marathon, the Brent Knoll Race and the Beach Race."
Harriers is a community club which has in the past made donations
to BASC for their superb race facilities, and Burnham Junior Rugby
Team to sponsor their after-match shirts.
Meanwhile, it's hoped that the club's latest initiative, the Parkrun,
at Apex Park will start early in 2015. There are a number of groups
that have shown interest in assisting with this and we are hopeful
that it will go ahead. The money that has been granted by the
local councils has been ring-fenced and will only be used for
the Parkrun set-up costs.
