Date of Next Event
The 2020 Rotary Club of Stamford Burghley Santa Fun Run, due to be held in Burghley Park on the 6th of December 2020, has been postponed.
Jon Whowell, President of the Rotary Club of Stamford Burghley, said. “A lot of hard work has already been done in to try and create a COVID Virus safe event. It has been decided that this year’s event will sadly have to be postponed due to current and possible future restrictions on social gatherings.
“We have worked very closely with the Stamford Striders on the 2020 Fun Run but it has proved to be something we cannot risk.
“The Fun Run has become an important part of the Stamford Christmas calendar. We have had around 10,000 fun runners take part in the past, helping to raise over £200,000 for local charities.
“We jointly hope that we can still try and raise funds for our main causes – Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall and the Stamford Food Bank. We will be contacting our generous sponsors and previous Fun Runners with ideas soon and our Club is in discussions with other Rotary Clubs to maximise funds for these important charities. Details will be on our website: www.stamfordburghleyrotaryweb.org
“I would like to thank Geoff Mayling and fellow Rotarians on our Fun Run Committee along with Brian Kearsey and the Stamford Striders team for all they have done to try and save this year’s event. We hope that 2021 will prove to be better for another successful event and we look forward to seeing Santa’s running around Burghley Park soon.”
