Bramham resident Kate Lofthouse, who helped organise the event, said: “Despite the torrential rain we had an excellent time and the run as well as being for charity, was of course in a beautiful setting at Bramham Park. I would like to thank all the people that were involved, including those who helped organise this event with me.”

As well as the run, youngsters and adults alike enjoyed a range of activities and stalls. Food was provided with a barbecue and bacon rolls served in the morning.

In total £3,644 was raised altogether and will go to the Lower Wharfe Youth Fund, which aims to encourage children to do a range of stimulating and fun activities that keep them involved in the local community.

The group of parishes that take part in the Lower Wharfe Youth Fund include St Mary’s in Boston Spa, St Peter’s in Walton, All Saints Thorp Arch, All Saints Bramham, and St Luke’s Clifford.
