On Saturday 17th January, Great Yarmouth Road Runners held the first of what is hoped to be many, Dinner Dance & Award Evenings.
The event held at Gorleston Golf Club was a great success. The runners and their guests enjoyed a 3 course meal followed by a short awards ceremony where runners were awarded for their efforts in 2015.
The club also presented a cheque of £200 to the Sandra Chapman Ward at the James Paget Hospital and acknowledged the help of Jeff Helmore and Rod Shulver for standing in at late notice to ensure the clubs 10k race went ahead.
A number of awards were presented including a new Club Members Member of the Year award voted for by club members.
Following the awards live singers provided the entertainment for the rest of the evening and was enjoyed by everyone.
The club would like to thank Nicos Symeou for organising the event and look forward to doing it all again next year.
