 2017 MARATHON | The SAMARITANS Run is as old as the London Marathon!  Did you know that the Bracknell, Wokingham, Ascot and District SAMARITANS Run  is 36 years old and is as old as the London Marathon?

The local SAMARITANS Run first started back way back in 1981 and was based at South Hill Park and it covered approximately 20 kilometres around the outskirts of the town. By the time the run was in it’s fourth year it had an entry of 3,000 runners.   

This year due to the generous  co-operation offered by Easthampstead Park Community School the SAMARITANS Run is returning to a venue that was last used in 1986.

Jackie Holland, who is Race Director, as well as being a listening volunteer  at SAMARITANS explains:  “Every single year we, at Bracknell SAMARITANS,  need to raise £23,000 to keep our branch open. We welcome face to face callers and receive over 10,000 telephone calls a year as well as those wanting to contact us by text and email. We also reach out into the local community helping at railway stations, when there has been a major incident, additionally we visit local hospitals, schools, prisons and festivals.  The annual SAMARITANS Run is a key fundraising event for us and we hope this year to have a really successful event, thanks to the generosity of Easthampstead Park Community School, allowing us to hold the event there.”       

The event is organised by Samaritans of Bracknell, Wokingham, Ascot & Districts. It is being held on Saturday  1st July and attractions include a pre-start warm-up led by Reading fitness instructor Sally Armstrong, chip timing and a “goody” bag. The SAMARITANS are encouraging families and friends to come along and show their support. A BBQ and refreshments will also be available for both runners and guests, and all Samaritans Run finishers will receive a special SAMARITANS medal.

Excerpts from The Spotlights Musical Theatre Group's (SMTG) production of My Fair Lady will be performed at the forthcoming parish summer party at Victory Field on Sunday July 2nd in Ascot. Alongside a local Rock Choir, one of the bands from Charters School plus a couple of professional bands who also perform at Jagz, partygoers will be able to enjoy several of the most well known songs from the show including "The Ascot Gavotte", "With a Little Bit Of Luck" and "Wouldn't It Be Loverly". 

"We were delighted to be asked to perform My Fair Lady at the party", said John Woodward-Roberts, the group's chairman "and we hope that the preview of its lovely music will tempt people to come and see the whole show at Papplewick school later in the month. We will be singing at about 4pm. Our very own Eliza Doolittle (Emma Pritchard from Sunningdale) together with the rest of the cast will be there fresh from a rehearsal earlier in the day so we should all be in fine voice". 

The SMTG are currently fund raising for Youth Music a charity set up by the parents of Alice Gross to support music projects for disadvantaged children. The group will give all audience donations for refreshments at My Fair Lady directly to the charity and are hoping to donate an amount that really makes a difference.  

My Fair Lady will be performed at Papplewick School from Thursday July 13th to Saturday July 15th. Performances will be at 7.30pm and there will also be a matinee at 2.30pm on the Saturday. Tickets cost £16 for adults and £11 for children under 16 and can be bought on line at www.ticketsource.co.uk/spotlightsmusicaltheatregroup  They can also be bought from any SMTG member or, by telephone, from the group's box office on 0333 666 3366.  A transaction charge of £1.50 will be made for all telephone box office bookings.
