Steve Wilson, captain of Grantchester Cricket Club said: “last year’s event was a great success with over 230 runners taking part and over £1,600 raised for the Rosie. Once again we are teaming up with Addenbrookes Charitable Trust (ACT) to raise funds – this year for the Healing Hearts Campaign which is raising funds for a new cardio vascular scanner for babies and children . The target this year is to raise £3,000. So please get yourself sponsored and help make difference for sick and recovering children”.
