A WEEKEND of fun activities in the village of Ridgeway will be supporting St Luke’s Hospice.
For the first time ever, the popular Ridgeway Beer Festival and the Ridgeway Fun Run will fall over the same weekend on May 20 and 21.
Throughout the day on Saturday May 20 a large selection of real ales and ciders will be available at three village pubs - The Swan, The Bridge Inn and The Queens Head – with transport running through the day between the venues.
Guests will also be able to enjoy music from live bands at each pub and there will also be bouncy castles, face painting, pub food and a grand raffle.
The following day, Sunday May 21, will see hundreds of local runners take on a 2.5k or 5k family friendly race, starting from the Ridgeway Sports and Social club - entry costs £5 for the shorter run and £10 for the longer.
Following the race, which many people complete in fancy dress, will be a fun day and activities at each of the pubs, including a quiz at The Bridge Inn.
“Many people in the Ridgeway community have been supported by St Luke’s and all the money raised across the weekend will help us to provide end of life care for local people and their families,” said St Luke’s Community Fundraising Manager Megan Senior.
“This promises to be a brilliant weekend of activities, with something to suit the whole family – and we really look forward to seeing as many people as possible competing in the two races.”
