Ragdale Hall joins in with the Run for Japan, headed up by Michelle, one of Ragdale’s Fitness Instructor’s.

On Sunday 17th April a number of guests, country club members and staff took part in a 1 mile walk or run.

The runners congregated at the front of the Hall near the bell at 9am on a beautiful spring morning to put themselves through their paces for this very worthy cause.

As a reward for their hard work, the participants carried on with further fund raising in the way of a cake sale.

Run for Japan is a charity that has been designed to bring the nation together to assist a country that is in desperate need of help following the recent earthquake and tsunami.

Proceeds raised amounted to £200.

Michelle says “Everyone’s spirits were high to run for Japan on a sunny Sunday morning. The cake sale went down a storm – cupcakes in particular went down really well and sold out immediately!”
