Derian House Sponsorship Horwich RMI Harriers young athletes raise £ 1,255.00

From Christmas Heptathlon 2009

Today some of our young athletes presented a cheque to Derian House for £1,255.00 which has been raised by them in the Horwich Rotary Xmas Heptathlon that took place in December 2009.

This was a fun competition, supported by the local Horwich Rotary for our young athletes age 6 to 12, that took place at the Bolton Arena, where they had to complete 7 indoor sportshall athletic events in less than 2 hours.

There were 74 young Horwich RMI Harriers & AC athletes that entered the competition, with some 26 Volunteers (parents and family) who helped with officiating and judging the results. Followed by a little Christmas party and presentation to the various winners of the event.

In the above photograph the Horwich RMI Harriers are presenting a cheque to Roya Khadem from Derian House. The athletes pictured are as follows, from left to right…Ellie Dacre, Tiff Dacre (Coach), Kelly Wainwright, Adam Ault, Nathan Townsend and Trinity Halstead.

All the money was raised by the athletes and this has been gratefully received by Roya Khadem on behalf of Derian House, who was amazed at how much fun the athletes had taking part in the event and in raising this fantastic sponsorship.
