2019 Doncaster Santa Dash latest

Entries are coming in thick and fast for the Doncaster Santa Dash (now taken over by Curly’s

Athletes https://curlysathletes.co.uk/ whose strapline is ATHLETES BEFORE PROFIT: Providing Inspiration and Support for all!).

As it’s their first year of running it they will be restricting numbers so once all the places have been sold – that will be it.

They have raised sufficient sponsorship for all the charities to receive ALL their entry fees, so the more entries a charity gets, the more cash raised – in addition to entrant’s sponsorship of course.

Please consider entering on behalf of FoSP so that we can plough even more money back into the park. We have spent rather a lot this year on various projects. Not that the other charities don’t deserve your support of course! Every one of them is worthy of contributions.

Teaming up With Sainsbury’s

We had a VERY productive meeting with a manager at Sainsbury’s this week.

They’d like to partner with Friends of Sandall Park and volunteer, committing to 150 hours of volunteering in their 150th anniversary year. It won’t stop there though – they want to continue the relationship with us, working within the community for the benefit of all.

We look forward to a long and lasting relationship!

Wheelchair roundabout up and Running!

After our first Crowd funding campaign the wheelchair roundabout is now in situ and up and running after its launch last weekend. Hopefully this will provide many hours of enjoyment to those who would otherwise miss out.

Our thanks go to EVERYONE who contributed.
