PHEW!

For a while it was touch and go as to whether the 2013 Pram Race would go ahead but in the end it was another huge success. Well done to all the runners, spectators, marshals, publicans and the dozens of other people involved in making the event a success.

Want some of the dosh?

We have now received most of the applications for funds and have agreed their distribution  - see here.

 

However, we have still retained  a small amount for any late applications. If you would like to be considered for a grant from the Pram Race, please contact the Treasurer, David Pollen.

What it's all about

The whole purpose of the Pram Race is to raise money for charity (Charity Registration Number 1145317) and the Committee is delighted to have been able to distribute over £8,000 to a wide range of local good causes in 2013. We're hoping to be able to give out a similar amount in 2014 but the costs of running the event are going up. 

 

A full list of those who have benefited from donations in 2013 is listed on a separate page of the website. For those wishing to be considered for grant of funds from the recent event, please make sure that you apply to the Treasurer early in 2014 - details on the 'About Us' page.

 

Think you can contribute?

The Pram Race doesn't run itself, well not quite! As you'd expect after all this time we've got the organisation pretty much sorted. However, we are always making small changes to make the race run more safely, smoothly and with the minimum of disruption to the Village.

 

If you think you could contribute time, energy or ideas then the Committee would be very pleased to hear from you. We are always looking for local people willing to contribute to making the race a continued success.
