Run for Olivia
BN5 Magazine have been aware of the great work of the Brain Tumour Charity since Olivia from Hamfelds was diagnosed last year. Olivia’s pledge has always been to raise as much awareness and funds for this charity as possible, and since her health has deteriorated recently Emma has come up with an idea to ‘Walk for Olivia’ to show our support, as well as raise awareness and money for this great charity.
Her plan is for two community walks, running simultaneously (details below) as well as a ‘Run for Olivia’ for which we, Henfield Joggers, are picking up the challenge. These THREE events will all be starting at 2pm from Cagefoot Lane in Henfield – Archie will be in attendance at the start and finish, with all events finishing at Henfield Hall.
1) The run will follow the same route as the Cross Country walk and starts at Stokes Garden in Cagefoot Lane, through the village and across fields to the Downs Link and along the river bank back into Henfield and finishing at the Garden Room, covering around 4 miles.
2) The Twittens Walk is a short loop starting at Stokes Garden in Cagefoot Lane, past the Tanyard Pond, St Peter’s and along Church Street. Then back up the High Street to finish in the Garden Room, Henfield Hall. Approximate distance 1km (2/3 mile) taking around 15 mins. Pushchair, wheelchair and mobility scooter friendly!
Afterwards, there will be tea and homemade cakes at the Garden Room and a BP Guild barbeque in the garden selling hot-dogs. Every penny raised will go to the Brain Tumour Charity.
If you have family and friends who want to walk, then there is something for everyone. We don’t need marshals for this, we just want to encourage as many people as possible to turn up and run/jog the route – we want to demonstrate to Olivia the support that she has around the area – lets make this a mass turnout!!
Henfield Joggers even have our own Just Giving page to support this, please feel free not just to donate whatever you can but also to share far and wide – lets raise as much money as we can for such a great cause and for such a well known local figure: https://
