Today, We had a blast at Thatcham Family Fun day - We got people up and shooting hoops and eating cake pops baked by our awesome cook, Vickie...

She raised an AMAZING £91.50 from her cakepops, cookies and wristbands so a big thank you to everyone for their support. She also was on hand to help raise awareness of "Ehlers Danlos Syndrome".

Unfortunately, Our lovable pie-eating mascot, Uncle Bob got caught cheating in the mascot race... He also finished last! Naughty Naughty!

There were 90 entries to the Fun run despite the wet weather during the registration period. The money raised from the Fun Run has been donated to Heart Start Thatcham, who were chosen by TSN as they felt it benefited all of the community.

The event was sponsored by Newbury Weekly News and Thatcham Rotary Club provided all of the Trophies.

Kings Mascot Uncle Bob finished 5th in the Mascot race and has been banned from eating pork pies for the foreseeable future!

Jacqueline Scoins-Cass MBE, Kings Head Coach and Chairperson of Thatcham Sport Network (TSN) said "it was a great first event for TSN and that we could make the fun run happen. Thanks to all the sporting clubs of Thatcham that Volunteered to support and help the Run go ahead".

Doctor Nick Young thanked TSN for choosing Heartstart as the chosen Charity for this year's event.
