Each year in June we have the Fred Whitton Challenge Presentation Night,
at which we celebrate the event, give prizes and present to the charities
the money raised by the event.
The 2013 presentation night was held on Thursday 20th June, at 8pm at the Prince of Wales pub in Foxfield. As well as the cheque presentation to the charities, there was a very enjoyable social evening at the Prince of Wales, to celebrate the event's charity fundraising, and enjoy an excellent buffet provided by Stuart, Linda & Sue.
A cheque for £40,000 was presented to Macmillan Cancer Support, and cheques for £10,000 each were presented to Duddon & Furness Mountain Rescue Team and North West Air Ambulance.
Not all sponsorship money from the event has come in yet, so if you've still got sponsorship money to send in then please do so as soon as possible (address on Contact Us page). Later this summer, when all the sponsorship has come in, we'll make further donations to charity and publish the final total figure of the amount of money raised for charity by the event.
