Charity organiser, promoter and popular NWRRC official John Hattton, who has been involved with the organisation of two major fundraising events recently for local deserving causes, confirmed this week that £4.5k was raised on Sunday at the Mental Elf 5k fun-run, and that a further £14k was raised at the recent Conwy Dark Run in October for Ty Gobaith, which utilised the Conwy parkrun course from the RSPB centre.
John praised the generous public support for both events, and from numerous volunteers and marshals, and confirmed: “The Mental Elf 5k fun run was a fantastic event, twice around the Eirias Park track in Colwyn Bay, then down to, and along the prom to the Toad, where turn-around Bob was there.
“I helped Mind charity to organise it, and we made £4.5k. The Conwy Dark Run staged on 28th October also raised about £14k for Ty Gobaith children’s charities.”
