The 2019 Event will be on Sunday 12th May
Apply to be a beneficiary
If you know a local charity or organisation that might benefit by receiving funds from the Sawston Fun Run, let us know. The Rotary Club are inviting local charities and organisations to apply to be a beneficiary of the event to be held on Sunday 12th May 2019.
Each year, the event, donates twelve to fifteen thousand pounds to charities and organisations serving Sawston and neighbouring villages. Since 1986 we have raised more than £455,000 for local hospitals, hospices, schools, youth groups, support groups and local branches of national charities.
You need to identify a specific project or activity that needs support, tell us who will benefit, and say when the funds are needed. Whilst capital projects are preferred, the selection is based on the strength of each case. The closing date for applications is 30th November.
It is the largest community event of its type in the area and attracts around 1,000 entrants. It succeeds due to the efforts of volunteers, some from the Rotary Club but the majority, over 100, from the community with support from local businesses and retailers. Past sponsors and advertisers are already confirming their backing. We would love to hear from any business or individual who is willing to help or be involved in any way.
Each year, the event, donates around £15000 to charities and organisations serving Sawston and the surrounding area. Since 1986 we have raised more than £440000 for local hospitals, hospices, schools, youth groups, support groups and local branches of national charities.
The Rotary club is indebted to the event sponsor The Cambridge Building Society, Jonathan Russel and Sawston Village College and sponsors Adams Harrison, Gravelles Budgens Sawston, Gibbs Denley Insurance Services, Morgan Sindall, Scotsdales, Vindis Sawston and the Sawston Parish Council as without them the event could not be held.
