Standard Chartered Great City Race - Thursday 12th July: More helpers required

A couple of weeks ago I put a call out for helpers for this years Standard Chartered Great City Race on Thursday 12th July. Thank you to those that have offered to help but I'm still short of approx. 14 helpers. Alan & Susie Morrish and Sally Butterfield have offered to act as reserves, as well as others, which is really kind but as Alan's approaching 80 it would be good to get helpers that are little younger and fitter, so please consider offering to help your Club.

To re-cap, we'll be helping to support the course senior stewards in marshalling the course and general assistance with the spectators and general public who need to cross the course. This will be the 8th year of assisting with this race so I think we're fairly familiar with what's required. In terms of timings, the start is 19:15, and we'd need to be on site by 18:00 (meeting outside the Bank of England), finishing by 20:00. In return you'd get a t-shirt, expenses up to the cost of a travel card, that all important club donation (400) and some post race refreshments, which this year will be in the basement room of the Master Gunner pub, which is adjacent to the start/finish line on City Road. There will be food available and each helper will get two drinks vouchers. It really is a nice social after the race.

If you can help then please drop me an e-mail with a contact phone number (ideally a mobile) and preferred T-shirt size.

Thank you for your continued support,

Regards, Simon Turton
