Dynamic Dozen set £1000 target for Children in Need

A band of twelve council staff have set themselves a target of raising £1000 for the 33rd annual Children in Need. The running party will be donning their trainers to cover 22 miles across Herefordshire over three days. The party will follow the route taken by community libraries during Children in Need week visiting schools and communities benefitting from Herefordshire’s community libraries and school library service. The party will collect donations from site to site.

On Monday 12 November the party will depart from Burghill community library at 10:00, run to Lugwardine school library and arrive at approximately 11:00. They will leave at 12:00 and run to Withington school library and arrive at approximately 13:00.

On Tuesday 12 November they will be starting at Ewyas Harold community library between 09:45 and 10:15. The party will leave Ewyas Harold at 10:15 and visit three people in Kentchurch who benefit from the delivered library service at approximately 10:35. They will then arrive at Garway community library at approximately 11:00 where they will be joined and supported by Councillor Graham Powell and Councillor Russel Hamilton.

The running party will start at Walford Primary School on Friday 16 November at 08:30 where they will be joined and supported by Councillor J Jarvis, Leader of Herefordshire Council and will run to Ross Heritage Centre at 9.15am and then on to Ross Library in time for their 11:00 teddy bears picnic story time.

Following the events in Ross the running party will be transported back to the outskirts of Hereford by car.  They will then run into High Town to join a conga party at the black and white house at 13:00.  The conga will leave the Shire Hall at 11:30 and will be led by a pedicab cycle back to Plough Lane.
