Run, run, run

Bedales have a record team of 65 entering in the Great South weekend of running events being held in Southsea on 19 & 20 October. The team comprises of Dunhurst pupils, Bedales students, teachers, support staff, parents, Old Bedalians and other friends.

Over 20,000 runners will be competing over the weekend as the event celebrates it’s 30th anniversary. Previous winners of the 10 mile race include running legends Mo Farah (GB), Paula Radcliffe (GB), Sonia O’Sullivan (Ireland) and Joseph Ebuya (Kenya).

Along with Pledgit, The Country House Company is supporting the team by funding their running shirts and matching the first £1,000 raised for charity. The team are raising funds for two charities: the John Badley Foundation which provides transformational opportunities to attend Dunhurst and Bedales for young people in difficult situations – without fully funded places, they would not otherwise have been able to consider an independent education; and the locally based Fitzroy charity – where Bedales students volunteer – supporting people with learning difficulties and autism.

Support on the day is welcomed. Saturday’s schedule is: age 14+ 5k (10.30am); Mini 1.5k (from 12pm); Junior 2.5k (girls 1pm; boys 1.45pm); and on the Sunday, the 10 mile event starts from 10.15am. Look out for the race on TV! Donations would be much appreciated online here which will be split between the charities. Many thanks to all runners and supporters.

The Country House Company worked incredibly hard to secure us our dream house in Hambledon and we could not be more grateful. Kate was incredibly knowledgeable and open about the house and its history, the local area and the market. We were kept in the loop on communications with the vendor, we never needed to chase and felt that whilst the vendors wishes were communicated and respected our cause was similarly championed which ultimately resulted the best outcome for all. If and when we choose to sell our home, we won’t be going anywhere else. Our experience demonstrates that getting the right team on the case makes all the difference. Thank you Kate and the team at The Country House Company!
