Fayre can hit the jack­pot

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

A HU­MAN fruit ma­chine will be the star at­trac­tion at the free Mart­in­mas Fayre on Satur­day.

The fayre takes place at St Martin’s Church Hall, in East­cote Road, Ruis­lip, from 10.30am un­til 2.30pm and en­try is free.

Among the fundrais­ers will be the hu­man fruit ma­chine which works on the same prin­ci­ple as a reg­u­lar fruit ma­chine, where a line of three match­ing fruit wins a prize.

In this case three peo­ple will draw one fruit at ran­dom from a box in front of them.

The fayre will be opened by Hilling­don coun­cil­lors Cather­ine Dann and David Yar­row and if suc­cess­ful it may be­come a reg­u­lar fix­ture. HILLING­DON Court Park in Uxbridge will be the venue for a new char­ity run­ning event for chil­dren, launch­ing on Satur­day.

The events will take place on the first Satur­day of the month at 9am from De­cem­ber 5 on­wards. They will raise money for the Mid­lands-based char­ity Kids Run Free, which aims to cre­ate fun, sus­tain­able run­ning op­por­tu­ni­ties for un­der-16s.

Chil­dren will be en­cour­aged to run as much as they want to with dis­tances from 50m to 5km.

Races will be­gin at 9am on Novem­ber 14, but par­tic­i­pants should ar­rive at 8.45am for warm-up and reg­is­tra­tion.

Par­tic­i­pa­tion is free, but chil­dren who want to take part should be reg­is­tered in ad­vance at www.kid­srun­free. co.uk.

If you would like to vol­un­teer to help run the event, con­tact Justin Mullis on justin@kid­srun­free. co.uk.
