Bourton Roadrunners showed their continued support to local charity by presenting a cheque for £2,000 to the Sam Pilcher Trust on Thursday 26 April. The donation comes from the proceeds of the Bourton 10k held in February with a record number of 545 runners taking part.
The Sam Picher Trust, inspired by Sam who started fundraising while battling T-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia, supports children and young people with cancer and other life-limiting conditions. It helped to set up a dedicated teenage cancer unit at Bristol Royal Hospital for Children and provides support to the Oncology Unit at Gloucestershire Royal Children's Hospital.
Trust Chairman Colin Pilcher said: “We’re very grateful for this donation, which helps us in our mission to direct funds to where we feel they’re most needed. We’ll use some of this money to supply an iPad to one young patient at Bristol so they can use variety of supportive apps to aid their rehabilitation. It will also help in our ongoing effort to refit and supply equipment at both Bristol and Gloucester hospitals.”
Bourton 10k race director Ian Shoemark said: “Each year, we’re proud to support a local charity through the proceeds of our 10k race. This year is a special as we’ve forged a close relationship with the Sam Pilcher Trust and can see directly where our donation is going. ”
The annual Bourton 10k is supported by Highbridge Jewellers who provide financial backing to stage the race and donate the prizes.
