East Anglian Run
We were asked by David Bird
if we could help promote Lindsay's efforts in the 'Great East Anglian
Run'. As you all know David has been supporting the charity for many years
now and we are only too pleased to give him and his family all the support
we can. Below is a copy of a letter David has sent to the Heacham
David, Joanne and Lindsay can be contacted at 19 The Drift Heacham PE31 7DT or Telephone 01485 572750
Dear Friends of the Heacham Newsletter
Just a few weeks
ago our daughter, Lindsay Bird came home from school and said that she had seen
a leaflet that had been passed around the school regarding the Great East
Anglian Run (10k Road Race). Lindsay
asked us if we wouldn’t mind her having a go at doing this as she is really
keen on sport of all kinds and is actually studying for her GCSE’s this year,
one of these subjects being sport.
Of course we
have agreed that she could do this as long as she was old enough to take part.
The rules state that to take part in a 10k race a runner must be 15 years
of age on or before 28th May 2006 and fortunately for Lindsay this falls just
right so she will be taking part.
I was taken
quite by surprise when Lindsay said that she would like to represent the charity
that I support which is of course Changing Faces, I hadn’t even thought of
this idea and think that it was a really nice gesture on her part to try to
promote the charity in her own way. I
must sincerely thank her for the thoughtfulness.
It has been
suggested by the family that we should put an article regarding this in the
Heacham Newsletter to see if anybody might be interested in trying to help Lindsay
raise some money by sponsorship in this run.
If you feel you would like to help raise some funds for the charity please
could you contact Lindsay, Joanne or myself on the above number?
With kind regards
David, Joanne & Lindsay
