Welcome to our Charity and Sponsors Page. A big part of East Cornwall Harriers is supporting local charities in the South West, not only through race donations but also through individuals raising money and also social events such as quiz nights.

5 Tors 2016 Donations

East Cornwall Harriers are pleased to have donated to those organisations who helped us make the 2016 5 Tors Race such a great success.

This year, the ECH Committee donated a total of £800.

Cornwall Search & Rescue, without whose help we would not be able to hold this race, received a cheque for £250. In their acknowledgement of the cheque, they thanked us and assured us we could look forward to their support again next year.

The Lions Club of Liskeard and 1st Liskeard Scout Group helped us with car parking and filling and giving out the Goody Bags; they each received cheques of £100.

Each year we choose to give a "one off" donation to a local organisation. This year ECH Committee voted to donate £200 to Linkinhorne Parish Council as Minions Village, where 5 Tors starts and finishes, falls within their parish. We asked whether it would be possible for the money to be spent for the benefit of Minions Village itself and their letter of thanks refers to this.

Finally, we also donated £150 to the Cornwall Air Ambulance. We felt it was appropriate this year as, unfortunately, we had to call upon their services to help a runner who fell on the course. The Bodmin Road Runners member was airlifted to Derriford Hospital where he received treatment for a broken jaw. We are pleased to report that he has made a good recovery and is back running again.
