Local man Martin Carson will be running the Barcelona Marathon and hoping to get sponsorship for Barnoldswick and Earby Bosom Friends
Martin is bearing all the cost of this run from his own means, therefore all money donated to Martin will come straight to our group.
Martin, and Bosom Friends would be grateful for any sponsorship recieved.
Sponsor forms are available at Bosom friends charity shop, and at the sweetshop on the square.

On the same day as Santa's Fun Run Walk, Sunday 8th December, there's a charity gig in aid of Bosom Friends at the Rainhall Centre featuring Gary Barlow tribute act + support.

The event starts at 4pm; tickets are £5.

Also that day, it's the first of three Sunday Markets in Barnoldswick in the run up to Christmas.

30 days to go before our effort to do the Way of the Roses coast to coast bike ride which covers a route from Morecambe to Bridlington.

Way of the Roses

It's a team effort which will take place over the August bank holiday weekend. The route is 170 miles, starting on the Saturday. Our first leg will take us from Morecambe to Malham. We had to stop here as the YHA was the only available accommodation available for the number in our group. Each leg should be roughly 60 miles each day but the stop at Malham is shorter at 42 miles in. This will have a knock on to the second day which will be 80 miles with our second stop at Pocklington, Travel Lodge for the night here. Monday will see the final leg through to Bridlington.

We will have a couple of support vehicles who will follow us along the route, they will be carrying luggage, supplies, and sustenance. Everyone involved are paying their own expenses for meals and accommodation so all monies raised in sponsorship will go to Bosom Friends.

We have a group Virgin Money Giving Fundraising page where you can sponsor our intrepid band if you wish to support our efforts. If you do donate and are a UK tax payer, please tick the box for Gift Aid which will ensure the charity gets and extra 25% from the government.

Saturday Night saw the Bosom Friends Spring Ball, held at the James Hargreaves suite at Burnley Football Club. After a lot of hard work from a group of young ladies who wanted to stage a fund raising event for the group. They banded together to produce this major event. The venue was packed and the event included a 3 course meal, disc jockey, a lounge singer with swing renditions and a live band to move the proceedings along. There was a free raffle ticket on every table followed by the main raffle drawn later in the night, there was a lot of very good prizes including a unicycle and free flights with Jet2 to any European destination which ensured the fantastic total of over £2500 raised on the raffle. The event itself raised over £7,500 for the group, well done girls. :grin:

There was free photo booth available during the night with comic dressing up gear. I will not subject you to our antics in that regard but offer the Bosom Friends website which has a lot of photos of the night.

Barlick was quiet when the coach dropped us off at 2.00am after a fantastic night.

2017 Santa Fun Run totals are in. The event had to be rearranged from it's original date due to inclement weather, (pavements shot ice at the time) and was rearranged to be run on Christmas Eve. Good time was had by all as reported earlier in another thread. Total raised exceeds £4225.00 :good:

We normally have the Santa Fun Run around this time but last year the pavements in town were so treacherous with ice we had to cancel but held the event on Christmas Eve. It was very popular at this time so this years event is a similar date:

You can walk, jog or run (or a combination of all) :smile: :santa2:

I enjoyed doing the Skipton one today Ian with a group of over 60s, perhaps we could arrange a OGFB team to walk the Barlick one. Any one else up for it?

Unfortunately it would take me while Christmas Day to do it at the moment Wendy. 3500 steps at Sislden Christmas thing today and I'm pretty well shattered. As a trustee I will no doubt be doing something probably Hi Vis related or round the finish. Well done for today.

I thought you would be playing a less strenuous role this year Ian! There must be some other members who could manage a 5k walk....

I see my question about the availability of free Santa suits has been answered....
Unfortunately Wendy even 5K would be a risk.....

Glad you enjoyed it Wendy. No High Vis for me either this time, just team photographer for family and friends that took part. Sally, Carla, Finlay, Julia and Carly.
