Horwich RMI Harriers & AC Raise £ 560.50 for Derian House

Fifty two young athletes from Horwich RMI Harriers & AC took part in the Horwich Rotary Xmas Heptathlon last December. All the young athletes ran, jumped and threw in 7 different indoor Sportshall athletic events in under 2 hours.

It was also a fund raising opportunity and these young athletes aged from 7 – 12 raised an amazing £ 560.50 towards a local children’s charity, Derian House.

A cheque was presented to Derian House by 4 of the young superstars on 7th February 2009.
