Join the ‘Thoresby 10’ this autumn for your hospital charity

A brand new race is being held at Thoresby Hall in aid of Nottingham Hospitals Charity this autumn.

The ‘Thoresby 10’ takes place on Sunday 18th October and participants can choose from a 10km or 10-mile run in the beautiful grounds of this historic hall in north Nottinghamshire. There’s also a 5km fun run / walk for those who want something a little less challenging.

The event follows on from the Longhorn 10k run which was also held at Thoresby Hall in aid of Nottingham Hospitals Charity in April. Both races have been organised by SBR Events.

Amanda Bishop from SBR Events says: “The Longhorn was a huge success with nearly 400 participants in April and we hope Thoresby 10 will feel different running through the beautiful autumn colours at Thoresby Estate. We are really proud to be fundraising for Nottingham Hospitals Charity as it affects so many local people and this will hopefully help to raise thousands more pounds.

“It’s a fun and friendly event and we hope the new walk/run course of 5km will encourage those who want to join us. Everyone earns a gorgeous autumn themed medal too!”

Daniel Craggs, Senior Community Fundraiser at Nottingham Hospitals Charity, says: “We’re delighted to be partnering with SBR Events once again for this new race in a stunning location. Runners can take part in aid of any area of Nottingham’s hospitals, so it’s a great opportunity to raise money for a local good cause while also getting fit and enjoying some beautiful scenery along the way.”

There are ten free places available to runners pledging to raise at least £100 for Nottingham Hospitals Charity, which will be offered on a first come, first served basis. For more information please call Daniel at the charity on 0115 962 7905 or email daniel.craggs@nuh.nhs.uk

Participants taking part in aid of Nottingham Hospitals Charity can choose to support whichever area of Nottingham’s hospitals is closest to their heart.

Nottingham Hospitals Charity exists to benefit patients, staff and facilities at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust’s City Hospital, Queen’s Medical Centre, Nottingham Children’s Hospital, Hayward House Palliative Care Centre and Ropewalk House Hearing Centre.

Donations help us provide the added extras that make a real difference to patient care at Nottingham’s hospitals, such as specialist equipment, improved facilities, medical research and staff development programmes.
