Waitrose and Partners Community Scheme – Supporting Pershore Plum Plodders

On the 1st of August, the Pershore Plum Plodders will have a box located at the EVESHAM branch after being selected to be part of the Waitrose and Partners Community matters scheme which runs throughout the entire month of August.

At the end of your shop in branch, you will receive a token (as shown in the picture above) to put in the box of the good cause you would most like to support.
The more tokens a cause gets, the bigger the amount of the £1000 it receives.

The Pershore Plum Plodders will be using any money that has very kindly donated for the training and development of our new and existing members.

Please let family and friends know about this great scheme and to pop a token in our box after doing their shopping !

Pershore Plum Plodders C25K Graduation

From Left: Suzanne, Tracey, Dawn

Saturday 27th July saw two more of our C25K participants complete the 9 week programme by joining us at Worcester Woods Parkrun.
It was a slightly damp morning with rain showers but this didn’t dampen the spirits of these two determined lades who put all their hard work in to practice and did themselves proud.
Suzanne Price lead the course, which started on the 13th May, with help from various club members who were on hand to support and encourage participants each week. 
Steadily building up their stamina, distance and confidence in a safe manner helped them achieve their goal which we were delighted to see. 
Each lady received a medal for completing the C25K and also enjoyed a nice warm cuppa at the end !

Brilliant achievement from both ladies and many congratulations. We will look forward to seeing you join in with our usual Plod nights.

If you, or anyone you know of, are thinking about taking up running, maybe you’re getting back into it after time away or you are just looking for a friendly club to join, then why not come along to one of our Monday night sessions where someone will be on hand to start you off on your running journey with us ?

Plum 10K 2019 Sponsors

This year we have grown our sponsorship programme even more. Without the kindness of these companies either as a direct sponsor or a donation we wouldn’t be able to keep developing the event and ensure we donate to the local charities as much as we do. 
Massive thank you to them all for their kindness and support.

NEW FOR 2019 –

This year we have changed our 10K water station cups to “OXO Biodegradable” plastic meeting BS 8472:2011 standards. These cups are sourced within the EU with a low carbon footprint and if for any reason they are not recycled correctly, they will degrade 100% organically without any plastic residue on landfill or water within 2 years or can be safely incinerated.

Pershore Plum Plodders C25K Graduation

Saturday 13th June saw 2 of the Pershore Plum Plodders newest members, Sandra and Gail, come and join us at Worcester Woods Parkrun to complete our 9 week C25K course.
Suzanne Price lead the course, which started on the 13th May, with help from various club members who were on hand to support and encourage participants each week.
Steadily building up their stamina, distance and confidence in a safe manner helped them achieve their goal which we were delighted to see.

I caught up with Sandra after the run who told me:
“I have always wanted to be able to run/jog and have tried on a few occasions without success, this is why I would highly recommend the 9 week C25K course with the Pershore Plum Plodders. With the support and encouragement that they gave me, it made it possible and if I can do it, anyone can.
My first Parkrun I really enjoyed. I won’t deny, it was hard, but Sally and Elinor’s support and encouragement got me round. I am now looking forward to the next Parkrun to try and improve my time ! ”

C25K finishers medal were awarded to both ladies upon completing our course.

Brilliant achievement from both ladies and many congratulations. We will look forward to seeing you join in with our usual Plod nights.
