Friends of Breast Cancer Now Celebration Black Tie Ball
Launch of the Mad March Hare 2020 Event The 1st November marked the official launch of the 13th Mad March Hare which will take place on Sunday 22nd March 2020. The annual quiz raises money to support the running of the Mad March Hare event meaning that unlike many other events 100% of the entrant’s fee goes directly to our chosen charity, Breast Cancer Now. The quiz night was a huge success raising over £1,000 with 27 teams and 169 people attending. The event is always fantastically supported by local people, running groups, walking groups and dedicated quizzers. We need to thank our wonderful quiz master Bill, who led the teams through their paces with some tricky questions and of course Swindon Town for the…
The Virtual Event Continued On… In response to the guidance around COVID 19, early in March the Mad March Team took the sad decision to cancel the event scheduled for Sunday 22nd March 2020. However, the virtual event had been running for the past few years and had proved really popular, so we thought it would be a good idea to offer people the opportunity to do this instead (following social distance advice of course). Pictures of happy families completing their runs began to fill our Facebook page and we busily started to deliver the medals which had been so deservedly earned. Here are just a few of the many pictures we received. https://madmarchhare.org.uk

Thirteen wasn’t an unlucky number for the Mad March Hare Event as the team were determined to do all they could to continue their fundraising quest during Covid! The annual event based at Lydiard Academy welcomes over 500 participants walking, jogging or running a 5k or 10k route around West Swindon and raises money for Breast Cancer Now. Our fundraising up to 2019 stood at over £113,000. However, this year in response to the Government guidance around COVID 19 and after taking advice from organisers of other large events, the Team took the sad decision early in March to cancel the event scheduled for Sunday 22nd March. We were very disappointed to have to take this action but we considered it was appropriate under the circumstances. Registration for the…
