Call for more people to come and join Newark's first glow run





The organisers of a new fun event to raise money for Beaumond House Community Hospice are appealing for more people to take part.

Light The Night ­— Newark's first glow run ­— will be held a week on Thursday. It has been organised by the fundraising team at the hospice.

Fundraising and events officer Holly Fowler said the response to the idea had been great with lots of interest but she would love another 200 people to sign up.

"It's so important to us that people get involved," she said. "It will be great fun, supporting a worthwhile cause."

The event is a 5k, with a double lap around Newark Showground. The course will include disco lights, music, a UV tunnel, giant LED columns and a foam machine.

"You can run, walk or dance," she said. "We wanted to do something a bit different and thought this would be a fun night for everyone."

Participants are being asked to dress as brightly as possible. T-shirts in yellow, green, pink, blue and white are available to buy along with other merchandise.

Refreshments will be provided after the event by The Muffin Top, The Curry Box and Angel's.

Serendipity Nursery will be providing a creche with activity tables and arts and crafts for children who are too young to run the course.

People can register online or by popping into the hospice. It costs £20 per adult, £7.50 per child, £45 for a family of four and £180 for a team of ten.

The entry fee only covers the cost of holding the event so Holly is encouraging people to raise as much sponsorship as they can.

"What people raise will directly benefit the hospice," she said. "Even if someone only raises £24 for us it would cover the cost of food for two patients for the day while they attend day therapy."

Registration starts at 5.30pm with the event starting at 7pm.
