The Scarborough News - - FIRST FESTIVE EVENT IS A BIG SUCCESS -

A three-mile run to mark the Ar­mistice Cen­te­nary has raised £350 for the Royal Bri­tish Le­gion. Or­gan­ised by Scar­bor­ough care provider Saint Ce­cilia’s and Scar­bor­ough Ath­letic Club’s Walk to Run Group, the event saw run­ners set off from Saint Ce­cilia’s in East­field and fol­low a route along West­way and Musham Bank along to Cross­gates and back via Cay­ton Low Road. Saint Ce­cilia’s Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor Mike Padgham said: “We had an ex­cel­lent turnout of more than 50 and ev­ery­one who said they were com­ing came – de­spite the rain! “It was great fun, for a great cause and I thank all the run­ners, the Ath­letic Club, in par­tic­u­lar Gill Glegg and Jayne Graves for sup­port­ing the run and the staff at Saint Ce­cilia’s for all their hard work.”
