torch_group_webOlympic Torch Challenge

The Mel's Milers Olympic Torch Challenge kicked off on Friday 18th May. Just a few hours before the real thing began it's 10 week relay across the UK, our own club's inflatable version blazed its way along the Downs Link, round the Country Park at Southwater, and back again. With union jack shoe laces firmly tied, all members will log their killometers for the next two weeks with the aim of reaching a combined total of 2012km. The result and award ceremony with patriotic cakes will take place on Friday 1st June after the morning run. Keep that flame burning !

Sussex Air Ambulance Cheque Handover

A cheque for 1800 was handed over to the Sussex Air Ambulance on 4th November at the air base at Dunsfold. This was the charity money we managed to raise over the past year, including the proceeds from our 10k. Whilst waiting for the helicopter to return from a call-out we were given a talk about the service provided by the Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance, and were impressed by the commitment from the staff to keep improving it. When the helicopter landed we met the pilot, doctor and paramedic and saw inside the small but vital medical unit. Let's hope we never need its services, but it's good to know it's there !
