Organisers of record-breaking Thrussington Fun Run thank event sponsors Mars

Have your say

The organisers of the ninth Thrussington Fun Run have thanked sponsors Mars whose kind generosity helped to raise a record-breaking amount for the village primary school’s PTA.

More than 450 runners of all ages took part in this year’s event.

Fun run organiser Liz Collingham said: “Mars were incredibly generous in sponsoring the event. They paid for all of the trophies, race numbers and chocolates.

“Without them we would never have raised the fantastic total of £3,000 - our highest amount ever!

“The chairwoman of our PTFA, Mandy Clapham, even ran the course dressed as a Mars Bar!”

The Thrussington Fun Run was the first in a mini series of events which also includes the Queniborough Fun Run on Saturday and the Frisby Fun Run (April 18).
