Perfect day for fun run

Runners beginning to gather at start line

About a hundred and fifty runners took part today in the annual Didsbury Fun Run. The weather was perfect for a fun run though perhaps a little too warm for the serious runners. What a welcome problem to have after our dismal summer! Young children, adults and families participated. Some wore fancy dress (spider man was particularly popular this year), while others took the event more seriously. Proceeds of the run will be divided equally between Francis House and Didsbury Baptist Church Community Building Fund. We don’t know how much was raised yet but when the figures are in, I’ll let you know. Thanks to all those who organized the event or helped out on the day. It takes a small army of volunteers to make the event a success. Thanks especially to Nicky, Ian, Anna, Kevin, Malcolm and Ann. More pictures will follow.
