This Saturday at Worcester Woods Parkrun, the Pershore Plum
Plodders were very happy and proud to sponsor £100 towards the £800 target for the
“Scrubber appeal” including parts/service for the defibrillator machine. With a
lot of our members using the woods each week, we felt that it was only right to
offer them a donation and additionally, a lot of our members individually donated
to help raise this much needed amount.
As of yesterday, £468 in sponsorship has been received but donations
are still needed so if you use the park, and especially if you are a Parkrunner,
then please donate by using the
following link and help by doing your bit.
On the 16th June 2018 i arranged for a coach to take 51 Plum members on a Parkrun pilgrimage to where Parkrun started way back in 2nd Oct 2004. Arriving in good time gave us all chance to have some time before we ran to have a look around and enjoy not only the park but some of its resident deer ! We could not of asked for better weather as the sun beamed down on us all morning and lining up at the start along with 1200 other runners was a bit different compared to the usual 500 we are used to. Some were out to chase a time, others were just happy to be a part of it and had a more relaxing run soaking up the whole atmosphere. That day for me was one of my highlights as a Plum so far and to share it with such a big number of lovely people from our club made it a day to remember ! By Tom Marshall.
