small park BIG RUN is dependent on the goodwill and voluntary support of many people and organisations. We know from our experience in 2017 that we will depend on many volunteers, marshals, first aiders, cake bakers, litter pickers, gazebo installers and more.
If you are interested in helping 2018 please contact us.
Organisations supporting the small park BIG RUN in 2018
Heeley Trust has been working locally for 21 years to develop community, improve the local environment, stimulate the local economy and develop buildings that would otherwise have been left to decay. Without their support and effort the small park big run would not be possible. Thank you!
The lovely people at Regather have once again donated fruit for all the runners that take part this year. Veg box organiser Fran Humphries has told us that Regather is committed to creating links within and across communities. Fran sees small park BIG RUN 2018 as an ideal way of doing this, both in Sheffield and across the sea to Gaza.
Once again, wholefoods shop and greengrocers workers’ cooperative Beanies is providing the runners with fresh fruit.
Many thanks to Up & Running Sheffield for their support.
As with last year they are providing 10% discount vouchers for runners’ goody bags!
Cafe Des Amis, a popular Palestinian cafe on Chesterfield Road, just round the corner from the park have said they will donate 10% of all takings over the run weekend to the causes the run is highlighting.
So, when you are hungry over the run weekend, get some scram from notre amis at Cafe des Amis
We are really lucky to have Rob and his crew come and lead an open session in the Meersbrook Park skate bowl.
Rob has been active in ensuring skateparks in Nablus have had support and has just come back from being there.
The organisers of small park BIG RUN, Sheffield Palestine Solidarity Campaign and the Sheffield Palestine Women’s Scholarship Fund are very grateful for the support given by the organisations in 2017
