Ultra Marathon 13 – St Bees to Carlisle
Embrace is a charity helping ordinary people in the Middle East to free themselves from a life of poverty and injustice. Mark Calder, one of Embrace's Regional Managers (our Son-in-law) has set himself the challenge of running 14 ultra marathons along pilgrimage routes across Scotland and the North of England, to raise awareness and money to help Iraqi refugees to go back to Iraq to build homes and start to rebuild their war-torn country.
On 7th November Mark will be running Ultra Marathon 13 (St Bega’s Run) starting from St Bees in the morning, going on to Carlisle, via Keswick. He will be passing through Caldbeck, Sebergham & Dalston, finishing at Carlisle in the evening. We invite you to support him as he passes through this area.
If you wish, donations can be made by mobile phone – text IRAQ to 70660 to donate £10. We will be able to give you more details in the November magazine.

Penrith & District Red Squirrel Group
I write as Chairman of Penrith & District Red Squirrel Group. I hope very much that through your parish magazine, I can thank Wendy Rheam and her wonderful team of helpers who put on a number of events through the years raising funds for our group.
Local fundraising is a vital, enabling the group’s work to continue as we strive to conserve red squirrels in Cumbria. I am delighted to say that we are more than holding the line and have absolutely no doubt that it is down to our rangers and volunteers that we still have red squirrels in this part of Cumbria.
If you could give the group a mention in your newsletter, I would be very grateful.
We need all the support we can get. Thank you
Robert Benson (Chairman) - 017684 86807 or 07836 610463
