Thurlby Tigers F.C., their squads, coaches and parents completed a 3k Thurlby Fun
Run to raise funds ForLucie. They had set a target of raising £1,000 and smashed
it with with a grand total of £1,278. Some of the members ran in fancy dress and
even tied themselves together as a 3-legged entrant. Many thanks for their great
The team show out in full support of For Lucie
We are extremely pleased to announce that Thurlby Tigers and For Lucie are forging
ever closer links. The Tigers who were formed in 2006 and For Lucie have announced
that they will be partnering in events over the coming years. The Tigers have made
For Lucie their nominated charity and plan fundraising events once again in 2012.
The main event is of course the Tigers fun run that is held annually in July. Last
year they raised £1300 with over 75 runners. This year they plan to beat that number!
For Lucie is incredibly honoured to forge these links with such a wonderful family
club and really look forward to working with them in 2012 and beyond.
John Lenton (Chairman) and Alex Watson (Secretary) have asked Trish and Jon to be
involved in the Tigers annual awards day. They have created the For Lucie Shield
which looks to recognise those who make a significant contribution to the club. The
nominations are made by the teams, volunteers and families and are submitted to Alex
and John. They in turn give all the nominations to Trish and Jon to decide who is
the winner for the year! What pressure! The announcement is made at the clubs presentation
day in May. What a superb way of recognising unsung heros of a great football club!
Calling all runners
For Lucie has teamed up with Thurlby Tigers once again in 2012 and we are aiming
to go even bigger and better! Last year the Tigers raised nearly £1,300 in memory
of Lucie. In 2012 we are looking to better that!
We are looking for individuals and teams to take part in either the Thurlby Tigers
3k or Thurlby 10k race.
The 3k race is part of the Tigers fundraising and they are promising to field over
100 competitors this year. You can run, walk, crawl, dress up, dress down(!) or
get into fancy dress. Age certainly is not a barrier at this colourful event It’s
a great atmosphere and it’s all in a great cause!
The fun run is for all ages
Running Thurlby for Lucie
The 10k race is slightly tougher with a couple of long climbs but offers a great
route through the quiet roads of South East Lincolnshire. You take in the villages
of Thurlby, Manthorpe, Wilsthorpe and Obthorpe. It doesn’t matter if you want to
take part as a lone athlete or make a team as we are looking for as many runners
and riders as we can muster for this fantastic event! Why not get a team together
and challenge another to beat their combined score?
When? - It takes place on the 1st July 2012. The 3k race commences at 10:15am and
then the 10k starting shortly after
How much? For the Fun Run (3k) it’s £4 per runner in advance and £5 on the day. For
the not so Fun Run (10k) it is £10 (TBC). We are also looking for people to get
sponsorship and we have set up a special Thurlby Tigers area on our Just Giving Page
Alex, John and Tigers are doing their part once again to raise funds at the Thurlby
Fun Run. You can pledge their support by joining their team or sponsoring them by
