NSS Water Bottle
Water bottles – it’s going to be a scorcher!

With the Relay on the horizon (Just a Week to go) we’ve had more donations from suppliers; upped our target total and got our hands on some Caps and Water Bottles! Its been another busy week!

Overall, Relay Jarrow are hoping to raise £80,000, which would be achieved if every team taking part raised £2000. We were shocked at how quickly we were able to hit the £1000 target, leading us to up it to £1500. Well We are already so close to that figure that we have decided to double our first target and go for £2000. With just over a week to go and another push we hope we can get the magical figure! If you want to help us achieve this you can donate through our Relay For Life Page.

This week we received a number of Umbrellas and LED armbands from Mascot and a box of Red wine from ATC Semitec. We can’t thank everyone, who has donated, enough! It really does mean a lot. All of the prizes that have been donated will be part of a huge tombola. We will be running the tombola at our base camp. (Keep an eye out on Facebook on Friday and over the weekend for our latest news) See you at the Relay!
