As you all (hopefully!) know, our very own Birtley Junior XC Relays will be taking place at Lord Lawson on the 13th of March. We are asking you to help by providing the following items:-
1. Yourselves! We need people to act as marshals on the day, doing this will not stop you seeing your child race, as you'll get a great view of them running around the course! Don't have a child running? Doesn't matter - please consider stepping up to help the club run this popular and successful event, which also helps to bring money into the club to help us further develop our athletes. We also need volunteers to help man the refreshments, a very important role which is much appreciated by all involved! A sign up sheet is available on the noticeboard page, please get yourselves signed up as soon as possible.
2. Items to sell for the refreshments mentioned above - homemade or shop bought (we don't mind which!), cakes, biscuits, pies, pizza slices, sweets, scones, whatever you would like to bring us will be very welcome.
3. Maggie Pavlou, who is a member of our Birtley Joggers group, volunteers in the People's Kitchen in Newcastle, and we would like to help out this very worthwhile charity by collecting adult clothing donations at the relays. Please bring any unwanted clothing (bet you have a drawer full of race tops that never see the light of day, like most runners!), and in particular trainers if they are past their running best (but still serviceable), as the charity is always in need of these items. Any outdoor clothing, such as jackets, trousers, or waterproofs, would also be very appreciated. Thank you!
