The Government lockdown and restrictions have made it a disastrous year for the fundraising side of Victoria's Wish, in particular the Great North Run where we were scheduled to have 20 runners raising money for us, was cancelled. However, the 40th GNR is rescheduled for Sunday September 12th in 2021 and we hope to have the same full list of 20 runners raising money for our cause. We may have a few entries available for the 2021 run and believe me entries are as rare as hen's teeth this year with all the entries being carried over from last year so if you are able to raise a few hundred pounds for our charity whilst taking part in the world's biggest road race then please get in touch and any spare entries will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
Despite the disastrous 2020 we still managed to provide £1,000 to Kirkleatham Hall School (Special School) to help them run their 2020 Summer School and were also able to provide respite holiday breaks in our caravan during the periods that holiday activity was permitted. The coming year is looking much more positive and we have already had several enquiries for dates for the caravan and are hoping the government works on data not dates (though don't hold your breath) and allows us to open the caravan for bookings as soon as possible.
