Charity supporters are being urged to sign up to a fundraising runway run, less than a month to go before the East Anglian Air Ambulance event.


The lifesaving charity will be hosting its sixth runway run at Sculthorpe Airfield, near Fakenham, on Sunday, September 14 and organisers hope around 300 people will sign up.

There is still time to get a team together and run, jog or walk the 5km or 10km track.

2014 is the first time the runway run has been organised at Sculthorpe after being run at Tibenham airfield in south Norfolk.

Diana Duhig, from Aylsham, who has been a volunteer for the air ambulance for over three years, said: “It is a great event and a really good time is had by everyone involved, from the participants themselves to all the helpers and spectators.”

“This year promises to be even bigger and better and I am really looking forward to it, especially as we move to a new venue and can start the day earlier – it will be a really fun day.”

The entry fee is £10 for adults, £5 for concessions and free for under fives.
