Speckles Ran in World Championship Hen Races for End Polio Now
Sat 5th August 2017 at 12.00 - 13.00
Although she didn't win, Speckles managed to raise over £350, which with Bill Gates Foundation adding twice that amount, will mean over £1000 raised. You can still reward Speckles' effort by a donation
On Saturday 5 August, Speckles ran in the Bonsall World Hen Racing Championships to fundraise for End Polio Now. After showing great aptitude and application in training, Speckles was overcome by the occasion and the large crowd of spectators. In heat 3, she managed to cover 2ft of the 15 yds course but wasn't last in her race. She managed to raise over £350 for End Polio Now, which with the Bill Gats foundation adding twice that amount, will mean over £1000 raised. Polio is still endemic in Pakistan, Nigeria and Afghanistan. You can still recognise Speckles' endeavour until the end of September by donating at at her BT MyDonate page.
