Seven years ago in June, ten year old Jack Covill-Lowndes lost his mother, Steph, to cancer. The charity St. Barnabas gave a great deal of care and kindness, not just to the ill woman but to all the family.
So Jack has decided to hold an event to raise funds for the organisation.
On June 8, A Run to Remember is being held at the Magdalen School field in Wainfleet. Registration starts at 10 a.m., an hour before the run.
Participants will be asked to pay an entry fee of £3 per person or £10 for a family of 4 (which must include at least one adult), for which they will be able to run, walk or crawl three times around the school field and earn a medal supplied by Running Imp.
There is also the option to raise more money by collecting sponsorship using an official sponsor form from St. Barnabas.
Jack is hoping to attract a large number of people to this event, by also offering a BBQ, which has been supported by Tesco and Kirks butchers of Skegness, side stalls and memorabilia pertaining to Elton. The latter includes tee shirts; CDs; a clothes hanger with a printed signature; a baseball cap; and two wristbands.
